Dreamy film
12 February 2009 | by (Tallahassee) – See all my reviews

'In A Dream" is a visually beautiful and emotional documentary about the Zagar family. Jeremiah Zagar does an excellent job separating himself from the subject, his family, without feeling detached. He objectively observes the disintegration of his parent's relationship withholding judgments or blame but at the same time his touch is intimate and caring. "In A Dream" brings the viewer a prospective on the Zagars only a family member could have. Isaiah Zagar is a fascinating man and character, wonderfully creative, endearingly funny, and tragically disturbed. He easily wins the hearts of the audience. Perhaps, though not as well as his beautifully strong and empowered wife Julia, who seems to be the nucleus of reality in Zagar's space world. The music in the film is excellent. The Books contribute some awesome tracks. Jeremiah uses the camera deftly to capture is father's stunning mosaics, which tell the story of the family. "In A Dream" maybe visually beautiful but it is the humanity in the film that is truly beautiful.
