    Despite its tendency to place more the interviewer at the center of the doc than its subject, and how his confrontation seems at times fruitless and misguided, this welcome follow-up to The Act of Killing is also revealing as it exposes a country trying to bury its past.

    An interesting film that looks at the Indonesian genocide of the sixties. Unfortunately it comes on the heels of an Act of Killing which covers the same topic in a much stronger way. Not a bad effort, just not great.
