Mr. Martin is confident in his convictions. The filmmakers are confident about their science. Justice, this strong documentary asserts, is at risk in the division.

It's too bad that Steve Mims and Joe Bailey, Jr.'s documentary Incendiary doesn't reach more effectively beyond those who already share its assumptions.

If occasionally a tad dry, it's a doc that successfully inflames one's righteous indignation at government-sanctioned anti-intellectualism, even as it leaves slightly open the question of its deceased subject's actual guilt.

Crime doc about a dubious arson case is made more interesting by the involvement of Rick Perry.

A gripping, appalling and finally galling tick-tock of justice denied in modern-day Texas.
