THE ACT OF KILLING

One of the most haunting, disturbing and unforgettable documentaries you will ever see, this unique film takes the viewer inside the complex psychology of Indonesian death squad leaders. Offering the killers an opportunity to re-enact scenes of their brutal crimes of genocide in front of the camera, the filmmakers boldly capture not only the men's boastful pride as they describe their terrifying deeds, but also the slow realization of the full scope of the brutal crimes. – AP
