The story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble who took on the Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said "Polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country." Molly's words have proved prescient. Now it's up to us to raise hell!

"This slick, enjoyable documentary pays tribute to the wit and wisdom of the firebrand Texas political commentator." - Dennis Harvey, Variety

"Reminds us that her particular brand of perspicacity is as vital and as necessary now as it was when she covered the 1968 Democratic Convention or watched George W. Bush rocket from the Texas governor's mansion to the White House." - Alonso Duralde, TheWrap

"Smart and entertaining, just like its subject." - Caryn James, Hollywood Reporter

"One of the greatest things that the film relates about Ivins is that she made many outsiders feel less alone, less singular." - Kenneth R. Morefield, 1More Film Blog

"12 years after her subject's death, director Janice Engel gives us ... the comprehensive cinematic portrait that Ivins and her many fans deserve." -Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail

"Sings a beautiful new psalm that will reach new disciples and renew the follower faith like a tent revival."- Kimber Myers, The Playlist

"Often hilarious and always a delight, Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins is the conversational, down-home story of the Smith College-educated Texan who found herself bouncing around the country to find her voice." - John Fink, The Film Stage
