Bill Hicks died in 1994, but his political comedy just won't go away, and that's a great thing.

Clips of his clever rants against state, church, corporations, overall idiocy, etc. are still regularly emailed and posted on social networking sites as 100% relevant to our time (it is actually sad to realize how little real change there has been since the early 1990s…).

Well, now he has his own documentary biopic, being screened currently at SXSW.

Here's the recently unveiled trailer for American: The Bill Hicks Story:
