Watch: Oscar Nominee Joshua Oppenheimer Discusses 'The Act Of Killing' In 50-Minute Talk

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 28, 2014 at 6:05PM

While the field is a tight bunch of worthy contenders, it's arguable that few of the Best Documentary nominees this year boast the level of critical acclaim that has greeted "The Act Of Killing." The BAFTA for Best Documentary, and the Berlin Film Festival Panorama Audience Award are among a slew of honors the film, produced by Errol Morris and Werner Herzog, and directed by Joshua Oppenheimer, has received. If you've watched the film, you know there's a lot to discuss, so why not spend nearly an hour with the filmmaker about how it put it all together?

The Act Of Killing

While the field is a tight bunch of worthy contenders, it's arguable that few of the Best Documentary nominees this year boast the level of critical acclaim that has greeted "The Act Of Killing." The BAFTA for Best Documentary, and the Berlin Film Festival Panorama Audience Award are among a slew of honors the film, produced by Errol Morris and Werner Herzog, and directed by Joshua Oppenheimer, has received. If you've watched the film, you know there's a lot to discuss, so why not spend nearly an hour with the filmmaker about how it put it all together?

Vice did just that, sitting down with Oppenheimer for a 50-minute talk that goes very deep. The powerful film tells the story of Indonesia's death squads, through the men who committed the atrocities themselves, and Oppenheimer explains his approach, the technique of getting them to re-enact their crimes and how he was able to gain such incredible access. The discussion is a heady and fascinating one and a must-watch for anyone who has seen the doc (or plans to).

Take a look below and let us know if you think Oppenheimer will be an Oscar winner on Sunday night.
