American: The Bill Hicks Story

Blu-ray Feature: The 10 Best Blu-rays of 2011

CHICAGO – Does it say something about the current market of Blu-rays that nine of our top ten releases of the year (and, honestly, most of the runner-ups considered) are for catalog releases and special editions instead of films produced in the current era? More and more often, modern releases seem kind of lackluster. Throw on a featurette, maybe a deleted scene or two, and put it on the shelf.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘American: The Bill Hicks Story’ Sheds Light on a Landmark Comic

American The Bill Hicks Story Blu-Ray

CHICAGO – The funniest jokes are the ones that ring true. They aren’t merely punch-lines. Cathartic laughs are earned not through formulaic quips but through candid observations both startling and relatable. I often find myself feeling awestruck in the presence of a great comic, simply because of their willingness to say what we’ve all thought but never dared to mention in public.
