7.5

Biography, Crime, Documentary: Unforgettable, chilling and emotional, The Imposter tells the gripping true story of a Texan boy who went missing in 1994 and was miraculously found three and a half years later thousands of miles away in southern Spain. Despite glaring inconsistencies in his physical appearance, the boy's family brought their long-lost "son" home to restart his life in Texas. Questions soon arise: how could the Barclay’s blonde, blue-eyed son have returned with darker skin and eyes? How could his personality and even accent have changed so dramatically? Truth soon proves stranger than fiction as the real story emerges. Universally critically acclaimed and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, this is a jaw-dropping story about the lies we want to believe and the truths we choose to construct.

In a plain, ordinary house nearby, unimaginable acts of violence and murder were taking place. When eventually a small town beat cop broke the case, both culprits were sentenced to death under sensational media coverage and pressure from the government to instill swift justice.

Crime, Documentary, Drama: Revealing the events behind Kurt Cobain's death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband, only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain's death was ruled as suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound). However doubts have circulated for over two decades as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff's detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artefacts from the 1994 case.

Crime, Documentary, Drama: Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill stumbles upon a U.S. night raid gone badly wrong in a remote corner of Afghanistan. An Afghani witness swears he saw American soldiers digging bullets out of the dead women and Scahill's investigation leads him to the secret maneuvers of the shadowy and powerful Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Our reporter is pulled into a world of covert operations unknown to the public and carried out across the globe by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. In military jargon, JSOC teams "find, fix, and finish" their targets, who are selected through a secret process. No target is off limits for Obama's "kill list," including U.S. citizens. From Afghanistan to Yemen and Somalia, as well as back home in New York where he tries to piece the puzzle together, Scahill meets with CIA agents, Special Forces operators, military generals and U.S.-backed warlords who go on camera and on the record-some for the first time. He tracks down the survivors of night raids and drone strikes, including the family of the first American citizen marked for death and being hunted by his own government. With a strong cinematic style and thriller structure, Dirty Wars takes viewers to remote corners of the globe to see first-hand wars fought in their name and offers a behind-the-scenes look at a high-stakes investigation. Dirty Wars is also a book by Jeremy Scahill on the same topic, exhaustively researched and footnoted and available on request.

The Act of Killing (Shorter Theatrical Version)
2012, Documentary
8.2

Biography, Crime, Documentary: Anwar Congo and his friends have been dancing their way through musical numbers, twisting arms in film noir gangster scenes, and galloping across prairies as yodelling cowboys. Their foray into filmmaking is being celebrated in the media and debated on television, even though Anwar Congo and his friends are mass murderers. Medan, Indonesia. When the government of Indonesia was overthrown by the military in 1965, Anwar and his friends were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie theatre tickets on the black market to death squad leaders. They helped the army kill more than one million alleged communists, ethnic Chinese, and intellectuals in less than a year. As the executioner for the most notorious death squad in his city, Anwar himself killed hundreds of people with his own hands. The Act Of Killing is a journey into the memories and imaginations of the perpetrators, offering insight into the minds of mass killers. The film is a nightmarish vision of a frighteningly banal culture of impunity in which killers can joke about crimes against humanity on television chat shows, and celebrate moral disaster with the ease and grace of a soft shoe dance number.
