Christopher G (us) wrote: "The Act of Killing" is one of those few documentaries that you can watch once (and most who see it will prefer to watch only once) and never, ever forget. It is the best, most powerful, and one of the most unique documentaries I've seen this decade, and maybe in the 21st century. In Indonesia in 1964 & 65 occurred what can only be called a genocide of presumed communist communities, caused by death squads which were at least tacitly backed by the West. Nearly fifty years later a number of those who participated in massacres of unthinkable horror talk about what they did. It's truly unsettling what they describe, in the form of beatings, strangulations, be-headings, rape and other forms of sick barbarities. But what's arguably more disturbing is the casual way these abhorrent crimes are talked about, and the lack of repulsion or remorse by many about what occurred, partially due to the fact there's little risk anyone will be punished for it, ever. Millions in the country still celebrate the military style rule of the time, they serve in elected office, and have propaganda talk shows to congratulate themselves (though many I'm sure also have little idea about this dark chapter in their country's history). The filmmakers here did something pretty brilliant, which probably produced more insight and history than any number of hours of interviews would have: they ask those who participated to reenact violent scenes of what happened during those purges. And these former thugs (they often proudly refer to themselves as "gangsters") are only too happy to oblige, putting in surprising effort to accomplish the cinematics. The scenes they act out, with some "Hollywood" stylization, range from darkly comical in a few instances, to absolutely grotesque and very hard to watch. Seeing them act out scenes they presumably partook in is chilling, but it's also where we see some humanity come out: in a few scenes the emotion of certain "actors" is overwhelming. As cold as these people might seem to the pain they've caused, no one deals with the situation in exactly the same way. And it all comes to an ending scene which will be etched in my mind probably as long as I'm alive. "The Act of Killing," tough watch as it is, needs to be seen, both for its important history on an under-reported atrocity of the 20th century, and for what it says about us as a people when we lose our soul and convince ourselves the worst acts are justified. I find it both interesting and a little pointless that they've now released a director's cut version that's a half hour longer. I have to think that version must be either for film students, historians, or for masochists. I won't sugarcoat it, this is one of the most grueling, uncomfortable movie experiences I've ever had in a long time. I'm glad I've had it, and I'm of no two minds in calling this film a masterpiece, but enduring an extended version is not something I plan on partaking anytime soon.

A serious step down for Yahoo Serious, who improved with Reckless Kelly (even with a serious case of the Carrot Top blues). This is like Young Einstein for older people, but less funny.Avant-garde my ass.

Wilhelm v (ag) wrote: It has been a few years since I have watched this film. Probably twenty if I really think about it. And like with any film that you have not seen in that period of time, your perceptions can be completely different when you sit through it all over again. Thankfully for me, that was not the case with Beetlejuice. The story was still as delightfully irreverant as it was initially, and the performances of the ensemble cast is still wonderful. Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis are both so naively young and witless, Winona Ryder easy to believe as the dark and lifeless daughter, Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones suprbly over the top in their roles, while Michael Keaton once again cements his brilliance in any role with this crazy and jovial character. Really, you want him to win, don't you? The kids probably didn't follow it all through the story, but they had fun, and that was the main thing.
