Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #25. Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence

The Look of Silence

Director: Joshua Oppenheimer
Writer: Joshua Oppenheimer
Producer: Signe Byrge Sørensen
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Receiving the stamp of approval from the likes of Werner Herzog and Errol Morris well before festival programmers and critics first laid eyes on it, Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Act of Killing might just be the best documentary film this decade will produce, and coincidentally as Oppenheimer told us in our interview with him, TAOK was born from the next project he originally set out to make – resiliency put to its ultimate test.

Gist: The Act of Killing is about the perpetrators — this is the other side of the story.

Release Date: The Cannes Film Festival is not an impossibility. Venice, TIFF, Telluride are all high probabilities, if this is a Croisette no-show.
