Movie Review – The Act of Killing

I was given another opportunity to review a movie for the site Lost In Reviews and this time it is over one of the most talked about documentary this year.  Joshua Oppenheimer has made one of the most shocking and in-depth documentaries about war criminals in Indonesia.  The Act of Killing is sure to be one of the best documentaries this year and frankly, the most harrowing and captivating documentary out there.

Check out my full review on LostInReviews.com.

“History is written by winners, and we won.”  A morbid act of justification and pride, this line uttered by the subject of the documentary The Act of Killing.  Director Joshua Oppenheimer takes a look at the genocide that befell Indonesia in the 1960’s, specifically focusing on the those that carried out the war crimes by getting them on camera to assist in a Hollywood re-creation of their participation in the mass murder of 1 million supposed communist citizens after the military overthrew the government.
