#3. S21: The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine (2003)

Storyline: This documentary, directed by a survivor of the genocide, chronicles the systematized murder perpetuated by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979, specifically the torture and killing of the educated classes in the notorious S-21 prison, which is now a museum. But this film is not about statistics and generalized history. Instead, it focuses on two survivors who return to the prison, coming face-to-face with some of the guards who insist that they were only following bureaucratic orders.

#5. A Quiet Place Part II (2021)

Storyline: With the newly acquired knowledge of the seemingly invincible creatures' weakness, grief-stricken Evelyn Abbott finds herself on her own, with two young teens, a defenceless newborn son, and with no place to hide. Now, 474 days after the all-out alien attack in A Quiet Place (2018), the Abbotts leave quietly their now-burned-to-the-ground farm, determined to expand beyond the boundaries on a peril-laden quest to find civilisation. Hoping for a miracle, the Abbotts have no other choice but to venture into eerily quiet, uncharted hostile territory, unaware that most of the remaining survivors have given up hope. And, this time, the enemy is everywhere.—Nick Riganas

#9. Shoah (1985)

Storyline: Claude Lanzmann directed this 9 1/2 hour documentary of the Holocaust without using a single frame of archive footage. He interviews survivors, witnesses, and ex-Nazis (whom he had to film secretly since they only agreed to be interviewed by audio). His style of interviewing by asking for the most minute details is effective at adding up these details to give a horrifying portrait of the events of Nazi genocide. He also shows, or rather lets some of his subjects themselves show, that the anti-Semitism that caused 6 million Jews to die in the Holocaust is still alive and well in many people who still live in Germany, Poland, and elsewhere.—Gene Volovich <[email protected]>
