The Act of Killing

maxresdefault

The Act of Killing is a comedic and visually arresting romp into genocide that would give Todd Solondz the creeps.  This stunning psycho-drama documentary awash in nostalgia and revulsion is not to be missed.  This film is the logical next generational step in the evolution of Errol Morris-style documentary reenactment.  Have the survivors (in this case, the killers themselves) reenact their experience in their own narrative language, and simmer in the consequences!  
Now I’m counting the minutes until the release of Joshua Oppenheimer’s third feature-length documentary, The Look of Silence, which appears to be a follow-up to The Act of Killing.
