Forgotten Cinema: The Killing Fields

Season 17, Episode 6

Title: The Killing Fields - Two journalists in war-torn 1970e Cambodia

The Mikes are taking a look at the 1984 Academy Award winning film "The Killing Fields" starring Sam Waterston, Haing S. Ngor, and John Malkovich and directed by Roland Joffe.


This one covers some heavier topics, but ones that deserved to have light shed on them. Mike Field and Mike Butler discuss the very 70's style filmmaking on display and how it's used to great effect. They also talk about how Ngor deserved his Best Supporting Actor award and how he actually lived through some of the terrible events depicted in the film.


So, grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits to the left and right of you and settle down once again for Forgotten Cinema!
