Hoping for something different in the hot months?
"The Look of Silence"
In theaters: July 17
Director: Joshua Oppenheimer
Why it's a must see: Joshua Oppenheimer's "The Act of Killing" was one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2013, a documentary that dissected the Indonesian mass-killings of 1965 and 1966 through chilling reenactments by death-squad leaders. With "The Look of Silence," Oppenheimer goes on the other side, and more personal, following a family of survivors who confront the men who killed a loved one.
