anarresti's rating of the film The Act of Killing

Everything I say or write about this film will be incomplete. For years, I suspect. I haven't digested it, yet. Maybe I never will. Like a portuguese jewish comentator said about Hitler, in a debate about the 2004 Downfall film, the horror is that he (Hitler) was not a monster, he was a normal person, like you and me. Normal people do monstrous things. And if a society makes killing normal everything turns insane.
