Praise for 'The Act of Killing' / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

After the screenings at Telluride Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival there has been extensive coverage of the film and the reception of the film has been even more overwhelming than we ever could have imagined.

Here are some examples: 

- A five-star review in The Guardian says The Act of Killing is "the best, and most horrific, film of this year's Toronto film festival...every frame is astonishing."
- Indiewire calls The Act of Killing "the Most Unsettling Movie About Mass Killing Since 'Shoah'"
- The Wrap writes: "A banality-of-evil portrait that culminates in an unforgettable realization of culpability and conscience among the otherwise remorseless killers."
- LA Times: The Act of Killing is "surreal, disturbing, timeless... Could well change how you view the documentary form..." 
- Movie City News writes of The Act of Killing: "Really, you need to see this movie. You just do. It's one of the most compelling, riveting docs I've ever seen; I've never seen anything quite like it, and I'll bet you haven't either."

And Canada's Maclean's magazine calls "shattering" The Act of Killing the best film of Toronto International Film Festival.
