Critics Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
The facts are so awful that Dear Zacharycan be forgiven much of its antsiness--as a memorial, as a condolence to Bagby’s parents (who became activists for judicial reform in their late son's honor), and as a howl of grief.

Los Angeles Times
An undeniably shattering story, if forgivably shaky in its impassioned, therapeutic unfolding.

AMAZING
This documentary came on right after I watched "Deliver Us From Evil" and I am so glad it did, otherwise I would've never watched it. With no prior knowledge of the Bagby-Turner case, I found myself in tears and frustrated at how the justice system...

This documentary tries to be both a memorial and true crime story. The problem with this is that leaving out one side of the story and presenting the killer's guilt as an accepted fact is appropriate for a memorial, but it is misleading and...

I'm still reeling from watching this most powerful documentary. It teased my heart into its story, then grabbed it and ripped it, broken and bleeding, right out of my chest! Forget the Kleenex, bring a mop...

An almost-great personal documentary about the life of someone whose family is visited with a terrible series of events. Since the film was created by one of the man's best friends, it is of course made without the detachment seen in many other...

As another reviewer stated, not knowing much about this story will rock you to your core after watching it. If you aren't what so ever moved or become emotionally attached to the people involved, it would be hard to say that you have any type of...
