  1. Ghostman's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    A flawed but memorable film about the Cambodian genocide involving two journalists, one American & one Cambodian, who get caught in the Khmer Rouge's taking of power in the 1970s. The film is well directed & well shot & features many great acting performances. However, the film suffers from focusing too much on Waterston's Sidney Schanberg character & not making Dith Pran the protagonist. [cont.]

  2. THE APOLL0's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    Great second half, but Sam Waterson's character and the chained perspective to his respective white liberal performance of sentiment and surprise outrage steals the perspective from what was never a story centered around white people who initiated the crisis to begin with. Would have been better if had been centered around Haing's character through the whole film, Waterson's only good scene was the award speech.

  3. zotibaws's rating of the film The Killing Fields

  5. runfromfire's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    Don't get me wrong, he'll always be my favorite TV DA but hopefully there is an alternate universe wherein Sam Waterston became the go-to serious actor of the 80s.

  6. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    I always put watching this off and now I can say how well made it was and how not dated this is!

  7. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    Duro e crudo film di denuncia del genocidio cambogiano,visto attraverso gli occhi di un "ospite" e di un "indigeno". Joffe'mette il timbro sulla disperazione e sul menefreghismo del mondo,e mostra i protagonisti in completa balia di qualcosa molto più grande di loro. A volte vira verso il melenso,ma và ammirato soprattutto per la denuncia che mette in atto. Buon lavoro.

  8. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    A no-nonsense, briskly paced journey into a less well-known modern Holocaust highlighting personal friendship and the will to survive.

  9. Bambarambambam's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    That John Lennon's song in the end.....

  10. Justerodeusintherain's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    I enjoyed the second part of this film a lot better than the first half. Film everyone should see based on knowledge of our history. Unfortunate that many of the graves and division the killing fields made still remains there today.

  12. Mark Connier's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    this is a very disturbing and sad but brilliant film about the horrors of a dictatorship-brilliant played by Hang Ngor-A very disturbing picture of attemps to wipe out a whole educated and uneducated people

  13. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Killing Fields

    There's a really amazing half hour or so of a character's internment in and subsequent escape from a forced labor camp that's disturbing and moving in equal parts. It makes how crummy the rest of this film is all the more pitiable by comparison.
