Saw Killing Fields again after 10 years and was quickly reminded of why I had fallen in love with the film. This is a hymn to the kind of love story I have come to love. There is no question of physical or platonic; it is a human love story (between Dith Pran and Sydney), a poignant reminder of the power of journalism. Salute to all sensitive and daring journalists who are more loyal to their journalistic principle – to give voice to the voiceless (Cambodia) – than to their nation or even their personal life.
The movie had changed me then and it certainly moved Chandni Sheth today, who is re-watching the film with Director’s commentary as I post this.
Highly recommended for cinema buffs and political junkies alike
