I saw Angelina Jolie present her movie, FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER, two nights ago. It is a straight-up great movie that deserves to be seen in the theater (although it premiered on Netflix.) It starts out a little clunky with a montage about Cambodia during the Vietnam war set to "Sympathy for the Devil" (eye roll), but as soon as it gets into the story of Loung Ung, whose memoir about her family's struggles under the Khmer Rouge is the source material for this movie, it becomes a beautiful and moving thing to behold. The actors are mostly first-timers, and the key characters are children, so there's an unvarnished vitality and immediacy to the performances that I loved. It's the story of a horrible ordeal, and yet the movie is never ponderous or preachy. It just tells the story with simplicity and grace. Every now and then, Jolie betrays a Mel Gibsonesque penchant for depicting suffering in graphic, lingering detail that might work against the storytelling (because you have to back out of the experience just to get through it.) But only occasionally. There's a surprising amount of aesthetic pleasure to be had from this film, even though the experiences the characters endure are intensely sad and painful and infuriating. Part of that pleasure comes from the lively performance of the young lead actress in concert with camerawork that places us deeply into her point of view. Sometimes her hands come from either side of the camera as if we're literally looking out of her eyes, but it doesn't feel gimmicky. It makes us children along with her, and surprisingly makes it easier to understand how a child might be more resilient under harsh conditions than an adult, who understands fully what is at stake and what has been lost. The camera is frequently at child's-eye height, the way Ozu's camera was kept at the height of a kneeling adult, and it changes how we experience everything. Jolie has earned her Cambodian street cred gradually, through 14 years of work and outreach in the country. That knowledge and commitment shows in the work. It's a lively, sad, brutal, visually gorgeous, inspiring film. #firsttheykilledmyfather #angelinajolie

Oscar Announces Changes for Foreign-Film Voting: Now Simpler! (Sort Of.)

As promised, new Academy president John Bailey, a long-time and passionate voter on the foreign language committee, has pushed through some long-awaited changes in the voting rules. It’s meant to be simpler; here’s how the new system works.
By the October 2 deadline, the Academy expects some 90 foreign entries. These will be divided into multiple lists (the number is TBD; last year, there were four); committee participants (volunteers from all 17 Academy branches) are each assigned a list. They are required to watch all of the films on their assigned list at one of two screening rooms in L.A. They can see as many films on other lists as they like, and will receive full credit for each movie they screen. (Previously, a committee member had to watch a given percentage of films to qualify for voting.)
The Academy acknowledges that many questions about the actual breakdown of lists and votes remain to be determined.
Publicists and distribution and marketing executives who are affiliated with any given contender are now welcome to vote. This is a positive change, because so many of the people with the most knowledge of the foreign-film world are the ones involved in releasing and promoting these Oscar contenders. Now the likes of Fredell Pogodin and Nancy Willen, to name a few, can also vote.
Some things haven’t changed: Screenings are still in Los Angeles only. (Broadening the pool on a global basis via the internet is still far down the pike.) But in the second phase, after the shortlist of nine is chosen, there may be changes in how a wider group of committee members see the films in order to pick the final five. (On the documentary side, streaming is already happening.) I’m curious to see how that plays out.

    We saw the aftermath first hand. Why We All Need to Watch This Movie About Cambodia - #FirstTheyKilledMyFather
    Why We All Need To Watch This Movie About Cambodia
    ---------------------------------------
    First They Killed My Father Deepens Understanding And Helps Bring Compassion To The Connected World In Which We Live.
    Why It Is Important To Watch First They Killed My Father

    In the world of over-saturated information, we have become de-sensitized to the atrocities that play out elsewhere.

    This film (originally a book by Loung Ung & now available on Netflix) is worth watching because it gives you greater insight into how something so horrific could happen so quickly. It helps you see the way in which the Khmer used confusion, starvation, and fear to gain authority in the country. It shows how people living normal everyday lives suddenly lost everything for no reason except geography.
    It also sheds light on the trauma that the Cambodian people must deal with as they move on with their lives. The people we met were so kind but carry with them heartbreak that we can’t even comprehend.
    There are great films that tell this story, first and foremost was The Killing Fields, released in 1984. A powerful piece that stands the test of time and was well deserving of the awards it won shining a light on these atrocities. The Missing Picture and S-21 are documentaries that are powerful in their own way. And now First They Killed My Father. What Angelina Jolie does is First They Killed My Father is brings to life a story that needs to be told, forcing people to stare ugly in the face and realize that these acts of warfare are happening in the same world which we live in. ln our lifetime, the killing fields happened. Rwanda, Bosnia, the Kurds, and now the Rohingya in Myanmar.

    We are proving that, as a species, we are capable of such great highs but we can also stoop so very low, more barbaric and savage than any who have come before. We can stop it by realizing it, facing it, and fighting it. We cannot pretend it isn’t happening there, or it could very well happen here. Talk about it with your children, and stop with the ‘poor souls wouldn’t understand’ garbage. Bambi’s mom died and we made it through.

  23. Review - First They Killed My Father
    ------------------------------------
    September 15, 2017Gheedo_
    From this moment on we can really say it: Angelina Jolie is not just a great actress but also tell director she will have her big space in the years to come! Already Unbroken (2014) personally convinced me but that his new job on a page so sad and bloody recent history of humanity as the cambodian genocide is on a higher level!
    First They Killed My Father is the adaptation of Loung Ung's autobiography released in 2000 and has the same name as the film. The writer has been actively involved in the production of this important film work as co-writer and producer, all to best tell the terrible genocide by Khmer Rossi (the followers of the Communist Party in Cambodia) to the Cambodian people themselves .
    We immediately start looking that I was most impressed with First They Killed My Father , that is, the story. I was partially aware of the narrative stories, but I will not be the first to say that with the notions we are taught at school these wars are not even taken far away! For this reason, I was immediately interested in this movie, because I think it's a great thing to know the main historical facts of recent years, whatever the country and the culture of origin.

    In this film directed by Angelina Jolie is really remarkable because it has as its basis a true, emotional, crushing and painful story that can not leave any spectator indifferent to what goes on screen. In addition to this solid and winning foundation, because this is still the key element in the beauty of the film, even messinscena is to be mentioned as an extremely positive element. The director has struck me every time since the aerial camera showed a wide view of everything that really happened in the ground underneath the more personal and family moments of the Ung family that always send strong emotions.

    In general, however, it is really worth appreciating the great production effort and therefore the desire to bring this incredible story to the screen. Much of the crew and also the cast is obviously Cambodian, this is already in itself a factor of diversity to be appreciated in a production of these levels. In a cast of unknown actors (in the West or at least in me) stands out without a shadow of doubt Sareum Srey Moch. The very young protagonist is the essential element in the great success of the film. Without an actor who makes you feel the pain in the end, the fear, the sadness and the joy of the actions that make and undergo any film will fail to reach its maximum potential. And in this the interpretation of the young Cambodian is nothing short of fantastic because he is never out of character and manages to give Loung Ung all the nuances necessary to really understand the discomfort and the physical and emotional distress he had to endure in the '70s. all the inhabitants of Cambodia!

    I think it's fairly clear that First They Killed My Father I liked it and so much! It's one of those movies that can tell a fraction of the story you do not hear every day, and more is doing it perfectly, cinematic and humanly speaking.

    Hopefully, being produced and distributed by Netflix , this title is seen by the largest number of people possible because it deals with so important topics that it becomes essential to at least have a minimum knowledge of what has happened and should never happen again in the world!

  30. Only posting part of it as long article but good

    ‘First They Killed My Father’ pays homage to family, resilience
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Only then does the viewer begin to fully realize the machine guns swaying on hips, the near-empty food pails, the kneeling children. It creates an unabated terror, an unconscious lean toward the screen, though the film exercises impressive restraint in its portrayal of violence. Early deaths are quick, unadorned and shown for what they are, as well as for their insignificance in the eyes of the Khmer Rouge, rather than milked for a sickening, Rotten Tomatoes currency.

    Instead the film’s imagery is surreal, often alternating between the saturated, lucid-dreamlike green of the tropical Cambodian landscape with the human horror of the work camps. It is a reminder that Cambodia itself is not an inherent land of ruin — it is the country’s people who have come to carry their own ruins, whether of state or of family. Against this scenery, the moments between persons feel much more intimate, which only underscores that this is not a wallpaper-paste historical film. This is a study in the resilience and love of family.

    It is a story about parents aching to take care of their children and the agony of being unable to do so, and conversely, it is children watching their parents, the ones who know everything in their worlds, break right in front of them. The film’s most heartbreaking moments, therefore, are also its smallest. When Loung’s sister falls severely ill, her mother runs to meet her in a medical tent where a patient uses a glass Coca-Cola bottle in place of an IV bag. The mother bows over Loung’s sister and cradles her face in her hands.

    “Ma’s here,” she says. “I am going to take care of you.”

    This recurring self-sacrifice, the need to protect and to save — even when such actions are hopelessly futile — is a searing reconciliation with the humanity audiences lose digesting history only through a Nixon newsreel. The passion behind this film is what drives its success — grief, after all, is without boundary. Loung, Cambodian producer Rithy Panh and Jolie, who has Cambodian citizenship and adopted her oldest son Maddox from the country, elicit empathy from even the most distant audiences. The film’s tagline is “A daughter of Cambodia remembers so that others may never forget,” and it closes with these words. The never-known, however, cannot be remembered, and with “First They Killed My Father” already streaming on Netflix, audiences can be exposed to a frequently forgotten tragedy of history.

    Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie finally proves herself as a legit director. My review of FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER here
    It’s certainly Jolie’s best directorial effort to date. She wrangles the multiple elements of this tragic historical drama successfully though without any significant flare. It’s clear Jolie has a connection and passion for this story and she brings the right amount of emotion to its film adaptation. First They Killed My Father’s biggest weakness is that a story like this has been seen so many times before, but maybe that’s also another point Jolie is trying to make. She’s combined her activism with the power of film to remind audiences of how frequent great human tragedy has been and how it can be survived. Other filmmakers might turn that into something cheesy, but Jolie wants audiences to bruise first so the healing feels all the more worth it.

    wagnerific
    I saw Angelina Jolie present her movie, FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER, two nights ago. It is a straight-up great movie that deserves to be seen in the theater (although it premiered on Netflix.) It starts out a little clunky with a montage about Cambodia during the Vietnam war set to "Sympathy for the Devil" (eye roll), but as soon as it gets into the story of Loung Ung, whose memoir about her family's struggles under the Khmer Rouge is the source material for this movie, it becomes a beautiful and moving thing to behold.
    The actors are mostly first-timers, and the key characters are children, so there's an unvarnished vitality and immediacy to the performances that I loved. It's the story of a horrible ordeal, and yet the movie is never ponderous or preachy. It just tells the story with simplicity and grace. Every now and then, Jolie betrays a Mel Gibsonesque penchant for depicting suffering in graphic, lingering detail that might work against the storytelling (because you have to back out of the experience just to get through it.) But only occasionally.
    There's a surprising amount of aesthetic pleasure to be had from this film, even though the experiences the characters endure are intensely sad and painful and infuriating. Part of that pleasure comes from the lively performance of the young lead actress in concert with camerawork that places us deeply into her point of view. Sometimes her hands come from either side of the camera as if we're literally looking out of her eyes, but it doesn't feel gimmicky. It makes us children along with her, and surprisingly makes it easier to understand how a child might be more resilient under harsh conditions than an adult, who understands fully what is at stake and what has been lost. The camera is frequently at child's-eye height, the way Ozu's camera was kept at the height of a kneeling adult, and it changes how we experience everything. Jolie has earned her Cambodian street cred gradually, through 14 years of work and outreach in the country. That knowledge and commitment shows in the work. It's a lively, sad, brutal, visually gorgeous, inspiring film. #firsttheykilledmyfather #angelinajolie
