The Act of Killing

Directed by Joshua Oppenheimer, 'The Art of Killing' is a documentary about the leaders of a right-wing paramilitary group.  The group was born out of a death squad that was formed during the 1965 Indonesian government overthrow.  These days, the leaders are regarded by many young paramilitaries as role models; People to look up to.  The filmmakers decide to challenge these men to recreate the moments of their past, the moments where they took a live (or rather, lives).  The men decide they would, but only if they could do it in a very Hollywood-esque fashion.  The trailer looks very interesting, and seems to show a fairly large glimpse into what it looks like when a certain kind of humanity is just... Not there.
