Like watching horrible, terrible history unfolding. The scenes at both embassies, in particular, have this uncanny feeling, this sense of unease that must have been felt at that time. Someone playing the piano while outside guards with machines smash cars and take whole families away. Trying to escape the country while escape is still possible. Also, Haing S. Ngor won Best Actor in a Supporting Role because…hell if I know, but make no mistake, this is his movie, through and through. Remember, the guy lived through this, through things too terrible to put to film.
