Description: DREAMING NICARAGUA is a movie about HOPE. It's about love for the dignity and courage of the human spirit that, even immersed in uttermost tragic conditions, wars for a better life, and in this case, with a friendly SMILE. DREAMING is a sensitive and lyrical portrayal of four kids living in extreme poverty in Nicaragua. The movie takes us beyond their hardships and gives voice to the youngsters, who are surprisingly funny, hopeful, and optimistic. A traveling art teacher provides a secure arena for our four unlikely protagonists to express their innermost thoughts. When painting, the children momentarily escape the stresses of their reality into a globe of dreams and ideas, a stark contrast to their lives outside: a vicious cycle of hunger, kid labor, and violence.

Description: Summers develops a quasi-autobiographical fictional frame for an inquiry into a gallery of Spanish celebrities who have decayed into something worse than total abandonment. The movie visits a famous singer, a winner prize warrior who has been committed to an asylum, and an ancient matador returning to the ring among many others to probe the anomie that comes with fame as a privilege at its apex and a curse at its bitter end. This movie treads somewhere between what should have been a legitimate "essay film" and a commercial "where are they now" featurette. The treasure hunt for the "campeón maldito" or "estrella maldita" (cursed champ or star) seems to be a fixture of Spanish famous culture today (as of course it is in a coarser method today in Anglo-American culture). In any event, this is an interesting instance of this.

A 2 hours sequel documentary to the documentary mini-series THE STAIRCASE (see my review there).While the mini-series was a court drama, this sequel was an emotional ride. It was truly moving, especially the last third.This sequel shows bits of the situation and bits of scenes from the mini-series, but focuses on what happened after that.I can't suggest enough the mini-series and this sequel. If this sequel doesn't transport you, you really have a heart of stone.Watching all those court/crimes documentaries really makes you lose any faith in the justice system. The system is corrupted. You may think it's unusual, but there are SO many innocent folks going to jail that something is just wrong (not just in the USA).
There were times I was swayed by the film. Nevertheless, I went back to watch those questionable episodes again. I cemented my opinion that Michael Peterson is guilty because of those unshakable physical evidences.The documentary is well produced. It displayed substantial amount of reasonable doubts which would resonate with the audience. However, it just liked "Making a Murderer". The physical evidences said the truth. Even though this one is inclined to the defendant's innocence and "Making a Murderer" is the opposite. The prosecutor might have a fair possibility to victory over the conviction the second time with less charges another than first-degree murder. There were flaws in the prosecutor's scenarios which bore significantly reasonable doubts. Michael Peterson would not have the second possibility in court if he was not sentenced to life in the prison. So bearing that in mind, the state attorney then if he charged the defendant with lesser crimes based on the physical evidences, Michael Peterson most likely would still be in prison. Personally, I trust keeping those psychopaths and sociopaths away from the general population as long as possible would serve the greatest interest to the public. There were few high profile situations in newest years where the defendants were off the hooks. Mostly, I would blame the prosecutors overly charging defendants with their alleged crimes. The proper charges could be based on the physical evidences. It would have tiny bearings on how server crimes were committed. Because more serious charges bears more burdens of proves which tends to lead to reasonable doubts. But being a public prosecutor is often treated as a political step stone. I don't see changes anytime soon.Michael Peterson is charming, articulate and persuasive. He is a typical psychopath. The director somehow was swayed by him to depict storyline one sided. His family rallied behind him because the closer they got they had difficult time to trust him being a killer. I think the prosecutor went on to seek out the evidences of the incidence happened in German was not a smart move. To me that was not more than trying to tie Peterson into a serial killer. The prosecutors' job could be convicting defendants and keeping them incarcerated as long as possible. Despite of my disagreements, this is a crime documentary worthy your time.
