A screenshot from the documentary 'American: The Bill Hicks Story' (27 min). 'Only Bill would try Hallucinogenics before he tried alcohol'

American: The Bill Hicks Story (imdb) is a fine, must see documentary for all comedy fans and People of Counterculture. The movie shows us a man who during his own lifetime lived and breathed relentless dedication to speaking hurtful truths to barely receptive small-town comedy club audiences, but was privileged enough to witness the early days of his persona’s journey towards cult-like status.

You can buy your own copy or rent a stream (HD quality available) on the film’s site. A 720p copy can be downloaded illegally over bittorrent.

The documentary is definitely worth its weight in HD bandwidth thanks to a ton of gorgeous animations made from photo cutouts. Lazy, white-trash Finnish fans might however enjoy the free, subtitled low-res copy of the movie on The Finnish Broadcasting Company’s Areena streaming site (25 days of geographically restricted availability left at the time of posting).

Finnkinon ja jenkkiyhtiöiden virtual print fee: elokuvalevittämisen uusi painajainen

“Aina kun elokuvaa näytetään digikopiolta, levittäjän pitäisi maksaa amerikkalaiselle integraattorifirmalle satoja euroja per viikko. Hinnasto oli auki, koska sopimuksia ei oltu tehty. […] Hollywoodissa on huolestuttu, kun paikallinen tuotanto lohkaisee taas yhä suuremman siivun elokuvalevityksestä: esimerkiksi Suomessa kotimainen elokuva pärjää taas yhä paremmin.”
