The Look of Silence is good, really good, if like me you measure the goodness of a motion picture by its ability to captivate you long after it ends. This film’s protagonist Adi drips with courage as he confronts the still powerful men who brutally killed his brother Ramli many years ago. The Look of Silence brilliantly captures many complex facets of the genocide, including the fact that some of the perpetrators believed they were doing an act of service that would win the favor of the US. Disturbing, profound…you will not be the same.
