Rembrandt's J'Accuse

Rembrandt's J'Accuse is a 2008 Dutch, German and Finnish documentary film directed by Peter Greenaway about criticism of today's visual illiteracy argued by means of a forensic search of Rembrandt's painting The Night Watch. Greenaway explains the conspiracy about a murder and the motives of all its characters who have conspired to kill for their combined self-advantage.
