    Default This documentary moved me, man

    Movies rarely make much of an impact on me but I think Dear Zachary definitely has and so I thought it deserved its own thread. I don't recall ever being so genuinely broken up over a film...honestly, could not stop crying. I don't think it was necessarily edited very well...it was just....WOW. The only other documentary that has effected me this much was Restrepo.

    If there's been a thread on this already, apologies. I thought it would be interesting to get some discussion going on it if you've already seen it. If you haven't, maybe this will get you to see it. I don't recommend reading the backstory because it would take away from the experience, imo.

    It's available on Netflix, btw. If you've seen it, what did you think?


    ..also, wasn't there a movie sub-forum? What happened to it?

    Anything to get you out of that Mississippi hell hole. (That is your state, right?)

    I just watched the trailer, seems different, saddening and interesting. Might give it a watch but never really got into documentaries.

    Might be a good idea to title the thread with at least the name of the documentary so the people who may have seen it would be more likely to click here, by the way.

    i was thinking about that but then i figured if ppl have never heard of it, they wouldn't bother clicking on this thread so i wanted to leave them suspensful and wondering what documentary i was talking about. lol.

    Just watched it on netflix... and holy shit, I'm bawling. So freaking sad.

    The whole thing pisses me off so much and proves that the whole court system is flawed to hell. I think the woman had a severe case of borderline personality disorder. Needless to say, I hope the neurotic bitch is burning.

    Yeah, the first part of this story was sad but then the second part hit me like a ton of bricks. I was a work while I watched it....something I don't recommend doing.

    Documentaries like this hurt so bad but they're so good at the same time.

    Would it be cruel of me to mention that Shirley Turner reminded me a lot of Maritsa? :x
