Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's Americana unvarnished and, because of that, as absorbing as it is respectful.
Fresh: Nate Larson's lensing is above documentary average, while first-time feature helmer Love's editing does an astute job of shaping the pic's first 45 minutes as an investigative mystery, leaving the post-arrest remainder for collective soul searching.
Fresh: The film's exploration of the tenuous bonds within a community will surely prompt serious soul-searching.
Fresh: Theo Love's mesmerizing documentary Little Hope Was Arson is as evenhanded as it is unsettling.
This movie is a joke
I wish I had a match. Over an hour of religious babble. Honestly, this was laughable. Texas, you never disappoint. You say you’ll keep your church doors open for children who go astray, yet you sentence 2 KIDS to 15 consecutive life sentences for burning down a building. Men serve less for killing over 10 people let alone arson on 10 plus buildings. It’s brick and wood with a cross on it. I wonder how you feel about gay marriage or interracial relationships, you backwards, prehistoric ape state. You’re a joke, Texas.
celebrates religious zealots, backwards thinking and prejudiced church / political groups who use the fires as further justification for their fight of ‘good' against 'the devil.’
In my opinion, when the youth turn against the false idols of their elders in these close-minded church communities... it’s a good sign.
You Could Call It Interesting...
...or you could call it what it really is: conservative, right-wing, religious propaganda. This is a very sad side of the world today.
