The Act of Killing is a 2012 Documentary film released on 31st August; Joshua Oppenheimer directed the film which stars Anwar Congo, Herman Koto and Syamsul Arifin. The film was a box office failure, making a loss of $555,425 on its budget.

In a place where killers are celebrated as heroes, these filmmakers challenge unrepentant death-squad leaders to dramatize their role in genocide. The result is a surreal, cinematic journey, not only into the memories and imaginations of mass murderers, but also into a frighteningly banal regime of corruption and impunity.

If you started watching this film now, it would finish at approximately 2:08am.
