Movie Info

The Khmer Rouge ran what is regarded as one of the twentieth century's most brutal regimes. Yet the Killing Fields of Cambodia remain unexplained. Until now. In ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE the men and women who perpetrated the massacres - from the foot-soldiers who slit throats to the party's ideological leader, Nuon Chea aka Brother Number Two - break a 30-year silence to give testimony never before heard or seen. Unprecedented access from top to bottom of the Khmer Rouge has been achieved through a

This is patient, persistent, probing and fearless journalism of the highest order and it shocks to the core.

How the genial Sambath remains so circumspect throughout his taut sessions with Chea is remarkable, as is so much of this must-see exposé.

Sambath is a great reporter and a wise, sympathetic guide, and Enemies Of The People accomplishes the difficult task of getting mass murderers on the record.

Restraint is precisely what makes this quietly harrowing documentary, composed mostly of interviews with former Khmer Rouge henchmen, so uncommonly devastating.

Like Chillingworth's investigations of the minister Dimmesdale in Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter," Sambath's conversations with Brother Number 2 and other killers aren't just reporter's interviews. They're attempts to cleanse and purge the heart.

Absorbing and historic.

January 16, 2011 Full Review Source: Georgia Straight

A fascinating documentary that illustrates Georges Bernanos's famous dictum: "La colère des imbéciles remplit le monde."

This astonishing documentary by Cambodian journalist Thet Sambath, whose entire family was killed by the Khmer Rouge, gets as near as anyone has done to discovering how and why the killing fields happened.

While providing a fascinating insight into one of history's bloodiest reigns, what shines through is Sambath's ability to bury any vengeance in favour of journalistic impartiality.

The methodology employed by Thet and co-director Rob Lemkin is occasionally manipulative and the truth often remains elusive. But this is absolutely compelling, nonetheless.

War crimes cinema gets a new wrinkle, or scar of honour, in Rob Lemkin and Thet Sambath's enthralling investigative documentary.

A powerful, well made documentary that serves as an important historical record, though it's understandably devastating to watch.

This documentary centering around the Khmer Rouge's Nuon Chea is a sobering reminder that amorality can indeed not only exist but also apparently thrive in a vacuum.

An all-too-human face is put on genocide in this highly personal investigation into the horror of the Khmer Rouge.

As if the subject matter weren't disconcerting enough, Daniel Pemberton's music is positively eerie.
