Surreal, bracing and unnerving, Joshua Oppenheimer’s documentary takes us deep into Indonesia and face to face with some of those responsible for the wave of mass killings in the mid-1960s.
Asked to re-enact their crimes in the genres of their choice (western, gangster, musical…), the now-elderly killers betray no shame or teary reluctance, just a gleeful pride as they recreate the gruesome horror like schoolboys with a video camera.
Oppenheimer’s film is a sometimes agonising journey into the heart of darkness that cosies you up to true evil in a way that’s hard to shake off.
