An Excellent Movie
31 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Previous posts have already covered why this movie is so amazing. I just wanted to let anyone interested know that this documentary is playing in New York, NY on April 10-16 for those in the area. Don't miss it!

Over the past four decades, Isaiah Zagar has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. In A Dream is a documentary feature film that chronicles his work and his tumultuous relationship with his wife, Julia. It follows the Zagars as their marriage implodes and a harrowing new chapter in their life unfolds.

Another thing I noticed about this film was the music. Efterklang is the band that Mr. Zagar chose to use, and they were an excellent choice. This is what he had to say about them: "I found Efterklang while searching online for ambient music about three years ago and after putting their music in the film I knew right away it would have to stay. In fact, the scene in which Kloy Gyn appears is still my producer Jeremy's favorite in the whole film."
