Rembrandt's J'Accuse is a 2008 Dutch, German and Finnish documentary 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. The film came out a year after Peter Greenaway's Nightwatching, a narrative film about Rembrandt featuring most of the same actors and sets.[1]
