Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Dan Jardine
The Killing Fields is a brutally honest exploration of loyalty and fidelity during the Khmer Rouge's horrific Cambodian holocaust in the mid-1970s. Based on the true story of Dith Pran (played by non-actor Haing S. Ngor in an Oscar-winning performance), the harrowing depiction of the atrocities committed during dictator Pol Pot's bloodbath stays with the viewer long after the film has ended. Pran's desperate struggle to survive in the barbarous conditions of the "re-education camps" (the apocalyptic images in the Valley of Death are particularly potent) is ironically counterpointed with the middle-class comfort of the friend who left him behind, New York Times reporter Sydney Schanberg (Sam Waterston), whose Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Cambodia proves pyrrhic when compared to Pran's fate. Ngor's naturalistic and empathic portrayal of his character's desperate fight for survival is the key to this film's visceral power. His remarkably expressive face combines with an almost naive faith in the power of one man to survive in such a hellhole. The film aims the finger of responsibility directly at the American government of Richard Nixon, arguing that his "secret" war in Cambodia led to Pol Pot's genocidal policies. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, The Killing Fields won three, for Ngor, Chris Menges's cinematography, and Jim Clark's editing.

    Wonderful Movie, Poor Sound Quality

    I loved the movie. Especially because the U.S. government dissproved of talk of the Khmare Rouge and the CIA's part in it until the last several years. This movie shows the horrors of what people can do to there own people. This is a truly exelent movie. I hated the sound quality though. The first half of the movie, I couldn't hear what people were saying.

    Heartwrenching

    Wow,this movie is about another sad occurance in this world.The Kmher Rouge(Red Army?)in Cambodia wage a holocaust of their own in "The Killing Fields,"and it mainly tells the story of a New York Times columnist and his buddy,a Cambodian,who are getting information and reporting on the war going on.I thought the ending was the absolute best ever!After the two friends get separated because a photograph put into a fake passport/visa to get out of the country fails, the journalist returns to the States and never stops trying to find his friend who was eventually sent to a Khmer Rouge labor camp.When they finally meet again at the end, that wonderful song by John Lennon and the Beatles comes up:"Imagine."Yes,imagine all of the world peoples living in harmony.One of my favorite sayings is:"Dare to Dream of a time when all the world will be free."Sorry,don't know who that's from.Just be kind to one another...for all of our sakes,bad karma in this world is building and taking its toll.I'm sorry I'm forcing all of my political views on you review-reading people, I'm just a concerned citizen is all!no hard feelings?=)

    Disturbing

    One of the most disturbing movies I have ever watched. It certainly captures one of the most brutal regimes in human history and the heroism of Dith Pran. Even the original score of the movie is jarring.

    an honest portrayl of the horrors of genocide

    i saw this movie and i felt as if i was actually in cambodia at the time of the pol pot regime. Ngor was fantastic in his interpretation of dith pran.
