I like the drugs and alcoholic damnation, the rehabilitation, and the early death by cancer story, a 'big joke on me' as Hicks said. Great routine the Jack Palance in 'Shane' stuff, to satirize USA foreign affairs

" October 13th - Bill Hicks has been a comedian I have admired for some time now ever since a friend of mine played one of his shows for me. His standup was so raw and honest, but still really funny. There was a bite and intelligence to his shows that were almost as much a sociology statement as a comedy show. The film does a decent job of documenting Bill as a person and also a performer, but it is lacking many of the qualities that he exhibited. The main thing that was irksome was the anim"

"First viewing A superbly informative, creative, insightful, and all together in-tune documentary about the life and work of a man who was not only a great comic talent, but was also a great spokesperson for social consciousness. A man whose legacy reminds us that a greater duty to our country and fellow human being exists somewhere out there beyond our own ego and beyond the corporate media news ticker that scrolls the bottom of our television sets. It should be said, however, that if you're ne"

"Animated documentary of late Bill Hicks, one of the greatest, most influential comedians of our time Most of the movie is filmed in an animation, and Hicks story is told by his friends, family and his fellow comedians. The docu shows some of Hicks great stand up moments and tells the story of how he got started in stand up, and how he developed into the great comedian he was. 7/10"

"12.5.2011, boksi Dokkarina ihan miellyttävästi valtavirrasta poikkeava ja koska Bill oli yks parhaista niin kaikki siihen liittyvä kiinnostaa. Sinänsä tosin vittumaista et tää Teeman versio kesti vaan tunnin, pitää kattoo toi leikkaamaton filmi joskus."

"Asiallinen dokumentti hienosta koomikosta, mutta jää kokonaisuudessaan vähän liian pintapuoliseksi. Toistaalta, vajaan tunnin kestoon nähden informatiivista materiaalia on saatu kasaan aivan riittävästi ja tämän luulisi ainakin ummikoille toimivan oivallisena johdatuksena Hicksin sielunmaisemaan."
