Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble who took on Good Ol’ Boy corruption wherever she found it. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said. “Polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words have proved prescient. Now it’s up to us to raise hell! (c) Magnolia Pictures

There was never anybody like Molly Ivins before, and never will be again, and this documentary does a fine job of capturing what made her special.

[Director Janice] Engel gives Raise Hell such momentum — it’s a whoosh of a movie — that you are quickly swept up in its sights and sounds. There’s a lot to take in.

With free speech under attack, and truth-telling seemingly in short supply, Raise Hell offers an entertaining and bracing look at one of journalism’s least punch-pulling practitioners.
