TrustMovies had never heard of Cameron Todd Willingham prior to seeing this movie about him, his family and the case of supposed arson that put the man on the Texas map. Ah, Texas: Here is yet another movie (one more--Texas Killing Fields--will open next week) that makes you thrilled not be a citizen of the back-ward state that has managed to elect George W. Bush as its governor, offering the fool a platform to the Presidency -- and then the likes of the god-pushing, sleazebag supreme, Rick Perry. If INCENDIARY: THE WILLINGHAM CASE does nothing else (it does a damn lot more, actually), what our country will learn from the film (if any retention remains in the American people) should put the permanent kibosh on Perry's Presidential aspirations.
Truly Indie and Yokel) opens this Friday, October 7, in New York at the IFC Center; on October 14 at The Magnolia in Dallas; on October 21 at the Bijou Cinema at The University of Iowa; and on November 18 at Laemmle's Fallbrook 7.
