Incendiary

JOY REVIEW

Incendiary is a documentary that takes a long time to get started. It concerns the Todd Willingham case, which I really didn’t know very much about. But this was a man who was convicted of setting fire to his children, a two-year old and twin girls who were about a year old, and watching their little bodies burn up, and that’s according to his defense lawyer. What this will make you do is hate all Texans and hate Rick Perry, in particular, who stood by and watched what was clearly a not-very-nice, but innocent man put to death. If enough people see this, Rick Perry will never get elected another term in Texas, let alone run for president, because it really is a stomach-churning perspective on a miscarriage of justice that was willingly done for political purposes. Four stars.
