Great and Misplaced Expectations

Despite the great expectations of many (including this author soon after the film’s release), TAOK has not caused a major public controversy in Indonesia. Even as the film becomes more widely available to broader segments of the population, I doubt it will radically alter political life in Indonesia or radically shift perspectives on Indonesia’s violent past.
