Default 'American: The Bill Hicks Story'- High-Def Digest Review

Steven Cohen has reviewed 'American: The Bill Hicks Story.' He says this is a creative and truly inspirational look at a fascinating and hilarious comedian. This Blu-ray has average video, fairly solid audio, and tons of strong extras. This is highly recommended.

I am positively intrigued by this documentary about a comedian who's had a very dark sense of humor. I may buy it.

Bill Hicks was a very well respected comedian here in the UK. So much so that his passing was mentioned by an MP in the House of Commons. Thats a bit like a respected UK comedian dying and being mentioned in the senate!

I love Bill Hicks, but I didn't like the style of this doc.

The animated stuff annoyed me after a while. I can understand why they did, to move away from the standard talking head delivery and allow them to play around with archival audio performances, etc, but it still didn't gel for me.
