Sam Kinison - Unleashed (Mill Creek DVD)
Sound: C Extras: C Concerts: B
As the Bush II Years dragged on, I wondered what Sam
Kinison would have had to say. Outside
of calling for the death of anyone watching Mamas Family, the loss of his subversive humor continues to be
greatly missed. We have been lucky
enough to cover his work before:
This new single DVD has two of his past HBO concerts: Breaking The Rules (1987) and the
exceptionally entitled Family
Entertainment Hour (1991) as the man goes into action and holds nothing
back. At the time, he was a whirlwind of
shock and now, he is a force of nature lost.
Good to have this available and in print.
The 1.33 X 1 full frame image in all cases is taped in
analog NTSC format, with the main shows looking soft and bonus footage very
aged. The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is
simple stereo at best and has background noise, as well as other sonic
limits. Extras include bonus stand up
footage unseen before and with a laugh meter.
