"The neo-Nazi next door: In Welcome to Leith, the deeply strange saga of a tiny town, a white supremacist and a crazy dream unfolds. Surprising and fascinating." - Salon
"A gripping you-are-there portrait of a community under siege...as engrossing as a fictional thriller." - Variety
"This could be the scariest film of the year... couldn't be more timely or essential." - Los Angeles Times
"Feeling more like a taut Hollywood thriller than a documentary, the film is a nail-biter from start to finish." - The Hollywood Reporter
"A gripping, stylish, and very scary feature documentary that also feels like a genre film, with beautifully desolate b-roll, gripping narrative, and a dread-ratcheting minimalist score." - VICE
