Presenting a terrifying view of a hidden holocaust and a moral apocalypse in which the most basic humanities have become twisted beyond recognition, The Act of Killing is a towering achievement in filmmaking, documentary or otherwise.
The Act of Killing will mesmerize, confound and haunt you. From the opening scenes you'll wonder if what you're watching is real. And by the end you'll wish that it had all been a horrible fever dream.
