Aroview: Remarkable portrait of controversial cartoonist and non-conformist Robert Crumb. Documented over six years, his friend Terry Zwigoff manages to get up close and personal to get a brutally honest snapshot of an unseemly side of the male psyche. It is not until we meet the Crumb clan, though, that things get much stranger than fiction.

4 stars (Very Good) Commentary from experts, contemporaries and former girlfriends; family background (they're a sad, disturbing yet oddly engaging bunch); career chronology; plenty of Crumb opinion. Crumb, like his work, provokes a complicated, ambivalent response. ~HiFi
1 star (Turkey) Disappointingly shallow documentary on the brilliant satirical cartoonist; a major figure in the 1970s. Instead of delving into his creative imagination it focuses on trivia. A similarly-styled film would have presented Salvador Dali as a madman. ~Sandy
1 star (Turkey) 119 minutes is a long time to spend in the company of Crumb and his arrogant mates. What a waste of a talent. ~tubbs
