The Act of Killing

I am watching The Act of Killing, imagine a country where over 600,000 people were killed by para military death squads and imagine 40 years later interviewing those who killed.

Not monsters or cartoon villians but real human beings undertook killing on an industrial scale.

Death squads are on their way back, from Honduras to the Philippines, Colombia to the Middle East, groups of right wing para military groups kill for a mixture of ideology and greed.

What makes them tick?

A scary film and unpleasant film but a necessary one.
