In the documentary “The Act of Killing,” men who were recruited by the Indonesian government to help massacre more than a million people in a so-called anti-communist purge not only discuss their roles in the genocide, they garishly reenact their crimes as if they were Hollywood actors. Filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer discusses how Indonesia might begin to come to terms with horrors of the past.
