The critical consensus

The Act of Killing director Oppenheimer’s return to the killing fields of Indonesia is as bleak, unflinching and utterly unmissable as its predecessor, while the number of people credited as ‘Anonymous’ in the end credits is as bone-chilling as what has gone before.

*****David Hughes, Empire Online, 08/06/2015

Joshua Oppenheimer is at the helm of another remarkable documentary.

*****Katherine McLaughlin, The List, 08/06/2015

Joshua Oppenheimer’s second film about mass murders in 1960s Indonesia offers the victims’ families the chance to interrogate the killers.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 11/06/2015

In Joshua Oppenheimer’s companion piece to The Act of Killing, Indonesia’s butchers speak again – but this time, so do their victims.
