Goodbye Dith Pran
Among the most affecting movies I've ever seen, and one of the best cinematic polemics ever committed to celluloid was The Killing Fields. Roland Joffé could have stopped working at that point and been assured that his reputation had been firmly established. Everybody associated with the film was uniformly excellent - I can't praise the film highly enough.
Dith Pran, portrayed vividly by Hang S. Ngor, died today of pancreatic cancer.
Here a link to a late interview with Dith Pran.
