The co-directors had only 800 photos of Hicks to illustrate their story. They found to their surprise that there was virtually no filmed interview material of Hicks simply talking about himself and his background. See more »
probably the finest stand-up comedian of all times
If you're looking for material about Bill Hicks, this is a place to start. If you're acquainted with his work, this might be your collector's album about his life. None of the background has been omitted: the highs and the lows supported by lots of previously unreleased footage.
The interviews with Bill's family revealed how much love and affection he received from them. In my opinion, this environment along with his talent and experience led him to become one of the best stand-up comedians of all times.
I found it great how this movie has been made as a mixture of archive footage and simple animation with voice-over of the interviewees. However, i felt that his approach might turn-off the average viewer, as well.
