AMER­I­CAN: THE BILL HICKS STORY (M)

★★★ A doc­u­men­tary tribute

to the late US co­me­dian Bill Hicks, who came, saw and al­most rein­vented stand-up com­edy be­fore dy­ing of cancer at 32. While his top­i­cal, opin­ion­ated brand of laugh­ter is de rigueur to­day, he was way out there on his own at his short-lived peak in the early 1990s. Per­haps not the most ob­jec­tive doco, but a must-see

for com­edy buffs.
