Thompson on Hollywood

This Weekend: See Harrowing 'The Act of Killing,' 'Blackfish,' 'Only God Forgives,' Skip 'RED 2'

This is a very strong weekend for indies. Joshua Oppenheimer's "The Act of Killing" is an artful examination of genocide in Indonesia; Gabriela Cowperthwaite's "Blackfish" centers on the lethal consequences of SeaWorld's captivity of orca whales; and Andrew Bujalski's latest, "Computer Chess," is a 1980s-set period piece following a group of awkward nerds at a chess convention.
