CGiii Comment

Blisteringly surreal...utterly camp, profoundly disturbing and chilling.

These 'men' are free...to administer their legacy - their reign of terror.

They are the epitome of repugnance...diseases most foul. They are all - without question - insane.

Indonesia: hang your head in abject shame...for your corruption and continuing support of these paramilitaries...they are, simply, Nazis.

The filmmakers must have been treading on eggshells throughout filming...possibly, the most unstable (and dangerous) subjects - especially, the fat (intensely stupid) one who likes to drag- up at every opportunity.

An astonishing idea made into an astonishing film.

Essential. Uncomfortable. An accomplishment.
