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 featuring Anwar Congo and Herman Koto is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming with subscription on Hoopla, free on PlutoTV, and 7 others. It's a biography and crime movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 8.2 (34,803 votes) and was very well received by critics.
