I always look up top documentaries of the year as well as what did the Academy nominate for the year. This was one of them that stood out as a sort of strange way of telling a story. This was a really disturbing, fascinating and a vision of evil in the world where people are oblivious of their actions. This amazing documentary seems surreal because it doesn't even seem like any of their actions actually happened. Especially the way they were re-enacting what went on. 90% of the perpetrators have no remorse at all and enjoyed reminancing over the great times of killing their enemy which was their own people. But the one gentleman you see is totally struggling mentally and emotionally. a very disturbing and confusing movie to digest. But even with that said, an Amazing documentary to see.
