Runtime: 1 hour, 55 minutes
In a place where killers are celebrated as heroes, these filmmakers challenge unrepentant death-squad leaders to dramatize their role in genocide. The result is a surreal, cinematic journey, not only into the memories and imaginations of mass murderers, but also into a frighteningly banal regime of corruption and impunity.

The Act of Killing isn't only one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen, it's one of the best films I've seen in months.
