In this chilling and inventive documentary, executive produced by Werner Herzog, director Joshua Oppenheimer examines 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 which raises questions about “the nature of documentary, the persistence of evil, and the intertwined ways movies function in our culture and in our minds” (LA Times). D: Joshua Oppenheimer, Finland/UK, 2012, 115m
