Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It must be nerve-racking for the producers to offer a tale so lacking in standard melodramatic satisfactions. But the result is worth it, for this is the clearest film statement yet on how the nature of heroism has changed in this totalitarian century.
Fresh: ... a visually arresting epic guaranteed to capture the hearts and minds of its audience.
Fresh: The best moments are the human ones, the conversations, the exchanges of trust, the waiting around, the sudden fear, the quick bursts of violence, the desperation.
Fresh: The director, Roland Joffe, and his photographer, Chris Menges, capture all of this with a realism that hasn't been so poetically convincing in a nondocumentary context since Gillo Pontecorvo's Battle of Algiers.

A Great Movie
This movie really shocked me when I first saw it. I thought it was a Doc. on Pol Pot and Cambodia. But it was a harrowing movie that kept me interested the whole time and somewhat shocked. Not the movie people come out of the movie theatre all talking and laughing. No you just come out numb thats all.
THE KILLING FIELDS is one the best movies of all time!
And definitely a movie everyone should see to learn a bit of the aftermath of the Viet Nam war as well as what journalists go through to get the story out to the public. Viet Nam was a time when the public actually saw stark reality on TV on a day-to-day basis. The pictures were not sanitized and moved the public to speak out and march against the Viet Nam war, which ultimately lead to America's pull out. This movie shows journalists honestly and plays out a great drama of two friends who loved each other as much as they loved getting the story and truth out to the world. It's unforgettable!
