"The Act of Killing"
Joshua Oppenheimer's documentary "The Act of Killing" has been wowing critics since it started its festival run last fall, and will finally have its theatrical release via Drafthouse Films on July 19. The film, which boldly asks former death squad leaders to reenact their real-life mass murders in the style of their favorite Hollywood films, is a co-presentation from Werner Herzog and Errol Morris, and has been called "chilling," "audacious" and "essential." Trailer below.

    Saw this at the New Directors/New Films festival here in NYC, just back in March. Straight-up excellent, in a haunting and elegiac way.
