Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Cobb is a truly scary presence whose eyes burn with fervor as he describes his racist, anti-Semitic agenda. At the same time, he is articulate, intelligent, determined and dangerous.
Fresh: As engrossing as a fictional thriller.
Fresh: Indeed, this could be the scariest film of the year.
Fresh: It's a story about deluded people in a lonely place who are all pretty much missing the point, and on some larger level that describes a whole lot more than one small town besieged by a right-wing kook.
A beautifully shot, atmospheric and contained film about race and community in the USA. It's eerie and weird, horrific: a small piece of the unfolding story of this country.
Intelligent ignorance and fear are toxic.
This documentary was not only one of the most interesting I've ever seen, but the story and the way it was filmed make it that much better. Definitely 5 star!
