Part documentary, part acting, all real. All too real.
Joshua Oppenheimer and his crew tricked these old ex-anti Indonesian communist party militia members to quite proudly reenact what they did to their “communist enemies” back in the late 1965-1966, and people say only jackass falls into the same hole twice. And they always believe that they’re heroes. It was wrong but someone had to do the dirty job. The good guys. The true Indonesian “patriots.” The winners.

My Rating: 10/10
