  2. mpho3's rating of the film Let the Fire Burn

    "Building with the awful inexorability of Greek tragedy... [and] drawing exclusively from contemporaneous found footage, Osder and editor Nels Bangerter fashion a mesmerizing account of how paranoid racism turns cultural differences into armed overkill. ..."The brilliantly edited tapestry of actions and reactions exposes a pattern of prejudice and fear capable of infinitely repeating itself." - Ronnie Sheib, Variety

  3. Zac Weber's rating of the film Let the Fire Burn

    Riveting archival footage and remarkable editing. Let The Fire Burn is a powerful and timely documentary, and I hope Jason Osder's even-handed approach will inspire similar projects.

  6. Matt Richards's rating of the film Let the Fire Burn

    Lovingly crafted with an obvious love of analogue Let the Fire Burn is a fascinating case study on radicalism. It's hard to imagine such a disgusting tragedy of injustice happening today but it does serve as a strong reminder on the danger of complacency in strong vocal opposition to the powers that be! 4 stars
