American: The Bill Hicks Story (2009) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay bias alert. I rate Bill Hicks as possibly the best comedian of the last 30 years. Bill Hicks is a modern day poet and a controversial genius all rolled into one and this innovative, interesting, simply first rate documentary is a must see for fans, converts or believers that America has given very little to the world. It’s clever, deletes deep into who Hicks was and leaves you with a huge appreciation of a true comic legend.
