Storyline

'Welcome to Leith' is a feature documentary chronicling the attempted takeover of a small town in North Dakota by notorious white supremacist Craig Cobb. Filmed in the days leading up to Cobb's arrest for terrorizing the townspeople on an armed patrol and his subsequent release from jail six months later, the film is an eerie document of American DIY ideals.

Good film, but definitely doesn't represent both sides equally.
13 April 2019 | by kolumboSee all my reviews

It's a good documentary, great pacing, great editing, interesting story. If the synopsis sounds interesting to you, definitely go ahead and watch it and you won't regret it.

Before watching it, I skimmed the review section and noticed one thing in common with all of them - they claim the film does a great job of giving both sides the opportunity to tell their story. That's what pushed me to watch it, as I had assumed, before reading that, that it was gonna demonize Cobb & Co.

Well, as much as I don't like saying this (in this case), I was right. Cobb is barely given a chance to talk, and that is near the end of the film. In total, his interview was less than 5 minutes. The other white supremacist guy is featured a bit more (which is weird, as Cobb is the main attraction, no?) with the filmmakers entering his home and interviewing him there, where he opens up and we get to see who he is, aside from the white supremacy stuff. We didn't get that for Cobb, in any way. Still, though, he wasn't nearly as represented as a few select townspeople, who were the main focus the whole runtime of this film, as that whole thing happens also really late in the film, and lasts for less than 10 minutes (including the few times he spoke to the camera before, which was minimal and didn't go anywhere except "What is white supremacy").

Other than that one, pretty big, flaw, the story is interesting and the scenery is beautiful, it's a fine film, the reviews just push you into believing it's equally representing everyone involved - which it is definitely not.
