The Act of Killing

Opens Oct 4, 2013
This monumental documentary situates itself in terrain so terrifying that few filmmakers would dare even visit. After connecting with a handful of boastful Indonesian thugs with a genocidal history, Joshua Oppenheimer offers them the opportunity to revisit their past through filmed recreations of their crimes, including action-movie-style massacres and executions. Oppenheimer then shows the men the footage, allowing them to process the human wreckage they have left behind.

"I have not come across a documentary as powerful, surreal, and frightening in a decade." (Werner Herzog)
