Welcome to Leith

Welcome to Leith ★★★½

Intense but not very in-depth documentary look at a teeny-tiny town (24 people!) shaken by the invasion of three white supremacists who are trying to lure in more racists for a democratic takeover. The behavior gets ugly all around, and the confrontations and manipulation are fascinating, but this doc is so painstakingly neutral and observatory that it doesn't ask any of the questions that need asking — not about the situation, and not of the interviewees. It's ground-level footage of a lot of unpleasantness, but it could use context. Full review for The A.V. Club here.
