The Act Of Killing - Theatrical Version (2012) ****1/2

A fascinating "documentary" where Indonesian gangsters who actually killed and tortured over 1 million "communists" in 1965-66 are asked over 40 years later to reenact their actions for the camera, sometimes in the style of various genres of film.

Largely focusing on one Anwar Congo, an incredibly articulate and intelligent man, who has no qualms about discussing his killings (he is said to have killed over 1000 people), but feels increasingly guilty as the film progresses. A powerful, disturbing, sometimes humorous and bizarre film that blurs the line between reality and fiction.
