The Act Of Killing

Denmark, Norway, United Kingdom | 2012 | Joshua Oppenheimer, Anonymous, Christine Cynn

The Act Of Killing

The most original, startling, and indelible documentary of the past year. The once feared, now elderly leader of Indonesia’s notorious 1960s death squads re-enacts some of his crimes—and demonstrates his murder techniques—for a foreign film crew, lending a human face to unspeakable atrocities. “More terrifying than any horror film, and more intellectually adventurous than just about any 2013 release, The Act of Killing is a major achievement, a work about genocide that rightly earns its place alongside Shoah as a supreme testament to the cinema's capacity for inquiry, confrontation, and remembrance.” –Village Voice.
