I'm watching the "Crumb" documentary, and one thing that's really interesting about it is the totally retarded reactions of the critics to his work. There's the pompous guy critic who's trying to interpret it in terms of the legitate artists (Goya, Picasso, etc.) to give it credibility. Then there are the girls who find it offensive/dangerous/pornographic - which it is of course, which is the whole point. It makes me realize how even these days there is so little "art" which really admits to the dark sides and reality of human thought.
