Movie review: Dear Zachary


This is an incredibly powerful movie. Very touching and very sad. It’s a documentary about the aftermath of a murder. The incredible fallout from the death of a man, who apparently was very beloved. I usually don’t bother worrying about spoilers, but I’m not going to get into them here with this movie.

I don’t think the movie itself was particularly well made. I don’t think it’s quite as polished as something like Capturing the Friedmans [DVD], but it doesn’t take away from the emotional impact of the film. I think it’s kind of a messy movie. The fast speech, the editing back and forth of bits, I just don’t think it played as well.

I’d encourage everyone to see this movie. It’s quite powerful.
