  • What the world needs now is Molly Ivins.

    October 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Given that it's 13 years since Ivins died, it's puzzling why this film is coming out now, but it's never not a good time to celebrate a woman with an outsized, big-boned talent...

    October 22, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Though the documentary doesn't feature any conservative talking heads to balance out its liberal voice, anyone could leave the film unsettled by how relevant Ivins's commentary remains today.

    February 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 12, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • [A] documentary that makes the case for how much the outspoken journalist's voice is missed today.

    October 4, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • This movie just a hoot and a half.
