- ‘First They Killed My Father’ an impressive effort
By David Lewis - Wednesday Sep 13, 2017
Angelina Jolie is quickly coming into her own as a fine director, and she takes a quantum leap in “First They Killed My Father,” which tells the story of the Cambodian genocide from the viewpoint of a little girl from Phnom Penh. Like her earlier effort “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” about the Bosnian conflict, Jolie has crafted an intimate epic about a tough war subject that probably would have gone unmade without her humanitarian influence and star power. “First They Killed My Father” is a much more assured film, even if a bogged-down middle section prevents it from greatness. The proceedings get off to a strong start, with news footage about U.S.
