Rating: 4/5 -- Perhaps what stands out most of all is how disarming Ivins was in spite of her sharp tongue. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- 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. Full Review

This movie just a hoot and a half. Full Review
FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
Sep 16, 2019
Rating: 4/4 -- Along with the pleasures of watching Ivins in action, answering fans and critics alike with irreverent aplomb, Engel's movie serves up an affectionate portrait of Ivins' longtime friendship with another strong, salty Texas woman, Ann Richards. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- 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. Full Review

Product Description:

Outspoken media woman Molly Ivins challenged the status quo in her home state of Texas, relying on her wit and writing skill to expose political corruption. Her staunch defense of the Bill of Rights and bold defense of her minority views garnered her a career that spanned four decades and a notable following. Written and directed by Janice Engel.
