Synopsis

RAISE HELL is the story of Molly Ivins, the outspoken political columnist and Texas maverick who spoke truth to power and gave voice to those that had none. Molly used humor like Mark Twain --- to skewer the powerful, protect the helpless, and to shine a light on bad government. Six-foot tall with flaming red hair, Molly was a fearless reporter who stopped at nothing, not even death threats, to speak truth.

The documentary rarely presses its larger points. But it calmly reveals how much journalism has changed since Ivins started out in the late 1960s, yet how relevant her observations about the blight of corporate money in politics and threats to the First Amendment remain today.

In the end, Raise Hell is the true celebration of the Texas spirit or rather, America on steroids as one commentator words it.

“Raise Hell” reminds us of the never-ending importance of those skilled observers with the ability to speak truth to power. And if, like Ivins, they can make us laugh while doing so, then they’re all the more essential.
