The Act of Killing: Cedar Lee/Lopez

 

Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

This “confrontational” documentary is about leaders of death squads who killed millions in Indonesia in the 1960’s--who are now celebrated as heroes.  When the director asks them to re-enact these murders, they proudly comply! 

Executive Director: Werner Herzog.

Yes, I know, this will be difficult to watch but it promises to be fascinating. 

7:00PM MOVIE at Cedar Lee (Approximate time)

Meet us in the lobby ahead of time, look for us in the theater, or catch up with us near the outer doors after the film.

9:30PM DINNER/DISCUSSION at Lopez

We'll take a 2-minute walk to Lopez.... .across the street.

Just in case you don't connect with the group after the film, proceed over to the restaurant and ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

Synopsis:

The filmmakers examine a country where death squad leaders
are celebrated as heroes, challenging them to reenact their real-life mass-killings in the style of the American movies they love. The hallucinatory result is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of mass-murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit.
