Critic Reviews for Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins

All Critics (54) | Top Critics (12)

Though the documentary doesn't feature any conservative talking heads to balance out its liberal voice, anyone could leave the film unsettled by how relevant Ivins's commentary remains today.

Janice Engel's loving portrait of perhaps the most famous liberal journalist in Texas history (there must be a few others, right?) feels a bit like a pitch for a biopic. That is to say, it's more portrait than story.

[A] documentary that makes the case for how much the outspoken journalist's voice is missed today.

October 4, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This movie just a hoot and a half.

September 16, 2019 | Full Review…

[A]s depicted in this sprightly, fast-paced documentary directed by Janice Engel, Ivins was a one-of-a-kind commentator who was both smart and savagely funny, using a take-no-prisoners sense of humor to eviscerate those she felt abused the public trust.

There's a sense in which Ivins doesn't quite fit in the documentary either - or rather what fits in is great, but what doesn't fit in (emotionally, personally) - gets left out, and that matters a lot.
