Watch First They Killed My Father on @netflix. Powerful story, tight set pieces and emotional wallop in final few minutes.— sean baker (@Lilfilm) January 14, 2018
Fantastic performances in Angelina Jolie’s First They Killed My Father. Sareum Moch, Run Malyna and the other children deserve recognition— sean baker (@Lilfilm) January 14, 2018
Yes! Anthony Dod Mantle. Should be getting more attention.— sean baker (@Lilfilm) January 14, 2018
-- From the director of The Florida Project -- and Brooklynn Prince. It appears he just watched FTKMF. He and Angelina were on the LA Times' directors roundtable in November. There were only seven of them in the Roundtable, yet it appears it took him two months to get around to watching the film.
This illustrates FTKMF's Awards season problem: not enough people may have seen the film in time. For various reasons -- including perhaps the subject matter -- it wasn't high on their must-watch list.
