Oscar-Nominated Netflix Documentaries – The Act of Killing
Gold Derby Odds – 11:8
Netflix Streaming Synopsis: This Oscar-nominated documentary recalls the bloody era in Indonesia when pro-government death squads slaughtered more than a million suspected communists as two ex-squad leaders reenact their atrocities for the filmmakers.
When it comes to the best Netflix documentaries, we just went from underdog to favorite … kind of. Out of all the Oscar-nominated movies up for “Best Documentary Feature” and available on Netflix streaming, The Act of Killing is the expert favorite. But 20 Feet From Stardom, which is still in its theatrical release and thus not yet available on Netflix streaming, is also a contender — Gold Derby sets its odds at 11:10.
Either one could walk away with the award, making them both worth your time.
