Dream/Killer :- Watch Dream/Killer on Youtube on Fire, I won’t reveal the end of “dream/killer,” but I will predict what you’ll feel after watching it: This documentary elicits large measures of incredulity, frustration and astonishment. In 2001 Kent Heitholt, an editor, was found beaten and strangled in the parking lot of The Columbia Daily Tribune in Missouri. Two years later, the police questioned Charles Erickson, a young man in an impaired mental state (he says he dreamed about the crime but couldn’t remember it) who abused drugs and suffered blackouts. Amid his confusion, he offered a confession and implicated Ryan Ferguson, a friend. Mr. Ferguson, 17 at the time of the killing, was tried, despite Mr. Erickson’s unreliability and an absence of physical evidence linking him to Mr. Heitholt’s death. He was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison. After Mr. Ferguson’s conviction, his father, Bill, began walking over the crime scene and researching the trial. The lapses he appears to have uncovered are nearly gasp-inducing: Witness coercion and intimidation by the prosecution; wide-ranging evidence omissions; and deeply flawed interrogation tactics seem evident everywhere in the case. Bill Ferguson, his ex-wife and Kathleen Zellner, a lawyer, began a long and ultimately successful campaign for Ryan Ferguson’s release. Their dedication is as inspiring as their cause is exasperating, and Andrew Jenks, the director, is at his best when drawing out their motivations. He’s also a good storyteller, structuring the revelations to prompt physical reactions most commonly, outraged exhalations.
