New York Times reporter Sydney Schanberg is on assignment covering the Cambodian Civil War, with the help of local interpreter Dith Pran and American photojournalist Al Rockoff. When the U.S. Army pulls out amid escalating violence, Schanberg makes exit arrangements for Pran and his family. Pran, however, tells Schanberg he intends to stay in Cambodia to help cover the unfolding story — a decision he may regret as the Khmer Rouge rebels move in.

The Killing Fields is one of my personal favorites that shows the terrifying imagery of what my people went through. Every Khmer person knows this film. My family and I gathered around and watched this film when I was just a toddler. I watched it again today as an adult and this time with director commentary on Blu-ray, which I won a couple years ago from the official WB Facebook page contest. Mike Oldfield's music in this is still piercingly resounding as I remembered it.

I remember watching this back in 1984 when it came out. It was long and tedious then. Now in 2020... it's long and tedious and a complete mess. The first half of the movie you're trying to figure out who the bad guys are and why should you even care about anyone. The second half you just keep watching it waiting for a reason to care about the colour of the walls in your room and what led you to this point in your life!!! 1/10

Such an important story that needs to be told. Everyone does a great job in the film. I was particularly impressed with Haing S. Ngor. It's amazing that he never acted before this. In real life, it was sad to read about his own experiences with the Khmer Rouge.

**A remarkable film that deserves to be viewed and that recalls a barbaric moment in the history of a country.**

When there's a war, there's bound to be a film about what happened during that same war. Human conflicts have always fueled the film industry. It's something instinctive, we are attrac More
