Documentary
In a follow-up to his repulsively mesmerizing 2012 documentary The Act of Killing, filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer once more ventures into provincial Indonesia to investigate the savage mass murders of political dissenters – routinely labeled “communists” – during the country’s military dictatorship beginning in the 1960s. This time, the camera focuses on Adi Rukun, a Sumatra resident whose brother was killed, and what happens when Adi confronts the killers, now living peacefully as respected members of the community. The shock value of the first film isn’t there anymore, of course, and even though the encounters are dramatic we come away still as perplexed as before. Was this trip really necessary? (103 min.).
