‘Let the Fire Burn’
Jason Osder’s walloping documentary recounts the tale of the political sect called MOVE—or at least its destruction, after a twelve-year-long war of nerves with Philadelphia authorities that culminated in an astounding, live-telecast attack on their fortified house. Osder’s movie has a few explanatory intertitles but no voiceover. It’s completely drawn from documents, notably the public inquiry held in the aftermath of the attack, and the media coverage that the events received.
