The Killing Fields ★★★★★

Devastatingly powerful, emotionally hard-hitting, and grittily realistic, "The Killing Fields" is a based-on-a-true-story film about friendship, war, and survival in the hell that was Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime. Excellent acting, skillful direction, noteworthy cinematography, memorable ending. This compelling film lingers in the mind long after the end credits have rolled.
