VENICE REPORT: THE LOOK OF SILENCE


You would have expected Joshua Oppenheimer's follow-up to The Act of Killing to be damn good, but would you have expected it to be just as good? Because reports from the Venice Film Festival are suggesting that it is. Here's a plethora of positive reactions to the documentary sequels for your perusal: Adam Woodward at Little White Lies, Guy Lodge at Variety, John Bleasdale at CineVue, Deborah Young at The Hollywood Reporter, Jessica Kiang at The Playlist, Catherine Bray at In Contention, Joshua Rothkopf at Time Out, Peter Bradshaw at The Guardian and Tommaso Tocci at The Film Stage.
