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. –TIFF
A harrowing, disturbing documentary that blurs the distinction between reality and simulation. The most powerful scenes are set in a shopping mall, where a 1965 killer is enjoying conspicuous consumption with his family. It would be easy to dismiss these criminals as psychopaths. The lassitude/complicity of western governments, the transparency of their abominable acts cast a dark shadow on humanity as a whole.
