Zac Weber's rating of the film Welcome to Leith

This is an even-handed documentary that inevitably forces the viewer to question their commitment to the freedoms espoused in the First Amendment. Cobb is vile and delusional, but he also generally obeys the law in public. Welcome to Leith is unsettling, but I usually prefer documentaries where I feel like I learned something about the subject as it applies to society. This just felt like an anomaly.
