YMMV / The Killing Fields


  • Anvilicious: Though Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The film's even more tragic now after Haing S. Ngor, who survived the Khmer Rouge and played a fellow survivor, was gunned down by punks in an L.A. parking garage. And why? They wanted the locket he swore never to part with—a locket that held the picture of his wife, who had been killed by the Khmer Rouge.
  • Tear Jerker: Just about everything that happens to the Cambodian people at the time, especially the children.
