  • The film's exploration of the tenuous bonds within a community will surely prompt serious soul-searching.

  • 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.

  • Theo Love's mesmerizing documentary Little Hope Was Arson is as evenhanded as it is unsettling.

    November 18, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film is attractively and professionally packaged however, with accomplished camerawork and editing supporting a narrative that eventually seems to reveal more smoke than fire.

    November 17, 2014 | Full Review…
  • It digs behind the headlines to raise some provocative questions about police tactics, organized religion, mental illness, knee-jerk violence, faith and forgiveness.
