In 2005, 20-year-old Ryan Ferguson was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Dream/killer is the story of how his father Bill embarked on 10-year campaign to prove Ryan's innocence. The film is chock-full of incredible characters. From the questionable District Attorney Kevin Crane, and the highly-confused witness Chuck Erickson, to the high-powered Chicago attorney Kathleen Zellner, the doc depicts both a highly flawed justice system, as well as one that can work brilliantly. Behind bars, Ryan provides a candid and intimate look at his life, while gorgeous animation is used to recreate his 10-year ordeal. Poignant footage from the Ferguson family archive is interspersed throughout creating a highly personal and revealing film. Bill Ferguson is not only a father but a best friend to Ryan as is demonstrated by his tireless energy and relentless creativity in his fight to bring his son back home where he belongs.

I recommend Dream/Killer for those with an interest in true crime documentaries such as Making a Murderer and The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. The film is centered around Ryan Ferguson, who is accused of murder, and his father, who goes to great lengths to try to prove his son's innocence. My only complaint (no spoilers) is that, unless I missed it, the film never included a clear account/timeline from Ryan of the night in question. I'm sure it existed, wouldn't have added too much length to the film, and it would have enhanced my understanding.
