"The Act of Killing"
"The Missing Picture"
Due respect to "The Missing Picture," a uniquely personal take on the Khmer Rouge atrocities that is Cambodia's foreign-language Oscar entry -- as a French co-production, it's eligible here -- but critics' darling "The Act of Killing," an equally unusual treatment of a grand-scale historical nightmare, would appear to have this one wrapped up. Come to think of it, the films would make a complementary (if extremely gruelling) double bill.
Will and should win: "The Act of Killing"
