A Rare Hicks Gem!
16 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now, I tend to follow a philosophy which can be summed up quite nicely by the following motto: "Fuck Jesus! What would Bill Hicks do?" So for your viewing pleasure, I bring you my second review of two rare Bill Hicks gems which I have dug up from the depths of my collection. If you don't already have these I HIGHLY Recommend grabbing them because they are gold baby, gold.

In this film we follow comedians- turned alternative journalists- Bill Hicks and Kevin Booth, as they journey across Texas, where they are heading to cover the standoff between "Vernon" David Koresh & the Seventh Day Adventists vs the ATF, at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.

We follow the two men in their car as they attempt to gain media access to the compound. After a few failed attempts they finally make it through, and we are privileged with a behind the scenes look at the way in which major media outlets cover big news events like the Waco debacle- all narrated by Hicks.

But more importantly, and much more entertaining, is Bill's coverage of the events with the compound way in the distance. Hicks goes on as if he were on a live feed to millions of viewers, even sending a message to Koresh himself. We also see Hicks interview a couple other people out at the scene. Booth also interviews Hicks.

The film ends with a couple clips of Bill on public access talk shows and his rendition of "The Compound Blues" which looks to be filmed in his room.

A must see for all Hicks fanatics, like myself.

10 out of 10.
