  Devastating.  As the major facts compile, so will your emotional responses.

 

  Despite a true hell-on-earth story, there’s a strong counterpoint - a geyser of love and hope that surprisingly recalls It’s a Wonderful Life, although this is no fantasy.  Dear Zachary is a real life testament to the courage and perseverance of the human soul.

 

  The focus on who the letter is for, the brisk editing and mosaic-style commentary, and most of all the careful revealing of facts add up to documentary filmmaking at its searing best.
