"The Act of Killing," one of last year's most acclaimed and controversial documentaries, arrives on DVD and Blu-ray today courtesy of Draftouse Films, and Indiewire has an exclusive scene from the release.

In "The Act of Killing," director Joshua Oppenheimer meets up with the men who led the death squads in North Sumatra in the Indonesian genocides of the mid 1960's in Indonesia, still celebrated in many parts of the country, and works with them to recreate their killings in the style of their favorite Hollywood movies. In the clip below, the men reenact their horrific acts as western cowboys.

Special features on the release include two versions of the film (the 122-minute theatrical cut and the 166-minute director's cut), a 45-minute interview with the filmmaker, deleted scenes, audio commentary with Oppenheimer and producer Werner Herzog, a 40 page booklet and more.
