Joshua Oppenheimer's The Look of Silence, a companion piece to his 2012 documentary The Act of Killing about the genocide that took place in Indonesia in the 60's put the look of silence on my face. The fact many of the perpetrators are wealthy and considered heroes by some made me sick to my stomach. All I could do as I watched was shake my head in disgust. The human race can be utterly despicable at times.
The Ron Says: Must see!

Quentin Tarantino has had my attention since the very first time I saw Pulp Fiction. It was the first film I ever saw where one of the first words that came to mind was masterpiece!

I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
