Critic Reviews of "The Killing Fields"Richard Schickel TIME MagazineAugust 25, 2008
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.Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderApril 09, 2008
The screen is swamped by a bathetic, self-preening sententiousness.Variety Staff VarietyApril 09, 2008
The intent and outward trappings are all impressively in place, but at its heart there's something missing.Geoff Andrew Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The film's overall thrust -- angry, intelligent, compassionate -- makes this producer Puttnam's finest movie to date.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
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.Vincent Canby New York TimesMay 20, 2003
The movie is diffuse and wandering. It's someone telling a long, interesting story who can't get to the point.Adrian Turner Radio TimesSeptember 16, 2015
Few feature films have captured a nation's agony more dramatically than Roland Joffé's The Killing Fields.David Sterritt Christian Science MonitorSeptember 16, 2015
[A] gripping, intelligent, provocative drama.Peter Travers People MagazineSeptember 16, 2015
If you see no more than one film a year, make this the one for 1984.Dan Jardine CinemaniaJanuary 09, 2015
Ngor's naturalistic and empathic portrayal of his character's desperate fight for survival is the key to this film's visceral power.Matt BrunsonJanuary 15, 2014
One of the great films from what proved to be a great year for cinema, The Killing Fields hasn't lost any of its power over the ensuing 30 years.Noel Murray The DissolveJanuary 13, 2014
Every scene of The Killing Fields (and every participant in its making) is in service of showing how abruptly a seemingly safe and vital individual can have everything essential stripped away.
