Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father 2008 / Kurt Kuenne’s transfixing documentary in memory of a friend will likely change you forever

9.9

Get ready to cry your eyes out, scream in anger, but also rejoice at the powerful love that exists in our world. We will not spoiler the premise of this documentary and urge you not to do so yourself. Instead, we recommend watching it and prepare to be changed forever. Call it true crime if you will, but this documentary is much more. Hailed as one of the most important documentaries of the 2000s, it is a testament to friendship and love, a real-life thriller, and a political denouncement all in one.

    Honestly a great movie. I can't say anything without spoiling it but you never really know where the movie is going next. 65 people liked this review.

    I thought I was one of those people that never cry until I watched this movie. I think everyone should watch it, but no one should rewatch it. But yeah, EVERYONE should watch it. 35 people liked this review.

    Kurt Kuenne stuck with 4:3 aspect ratio which was a great choice since all his old material has it. It really blends in and at some point you forget what was filmed 20 years ago and what was filmed around the millennium. Pay attention to the way it was edited and paced. For me, those aspects make this documentary so outstanding. Last but not least, the way he uses sound to underline a statement or a scene is remarkable. 2 people liked this review.
