Once again, it was another great movie I hadn’t seen for years so I was really eager to check it out again. Even though there has been countless movies about the Vietnam war, the conflict in Cambodia has been criminally forgotten whereas there was there a massive genocide which was still taking place even when this movie was released. Only therefore, it is already a really important feature. Lik... read more
View all The Killing Fields (1984) reviews
Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist convering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war. When the Americans forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2017 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 2hrs. 21min. First Viewing The Killing Fields is littered with numerous great scenes; thrilling and chilling in ways that only a real life story can be. Problem is, there's just too much bloat; I didn't really care about the stuff involving Waterston's character. It's a story we've seen before, rendering the first half a bit dull. The second half, focused on Ngor's struggles, is fantastic though, and exceeds largely do to Ngor's powerfully restrained performance. It captures a truthfulness"
