Trailer for Joshua Oppenheimer’s Brilliant and Disturbing THE ACT OF KILLING

The best film I’ve seen so far this year is Joshua Oppenheimer‘s The Act of Killing. Produced by Werner Herzog and Errol Morris, the documentary focuses on executioners from 1965-66 Indonesia who were allowed to murder practically anyone they wanted, and are still treated as heroes today. Because of their utter lack of remorse, Oppenheimer asks them to direct recreations of their atrocities. The trailer hints at the dark and twisted plot without giving away too much. But even by showing scenes from near the end of the movie, this is a film that can’t be spoiled. No trailer can recreate the absolutely chilling experience of watching this documentary.
