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 … More

Critic Reviews for Enemies of the People

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (30) | Rotten (0) | DVD (1)

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

Full Review… | December 9, 2010
Time Out
Top Critic

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

Full Review… | August 6, 2010
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Extraordinary on several fronts.

Full Review… | July 30, 2010
New York Times
Top Critic

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.

Full Review… | July 29, 2010
AV Club
Top Critic

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

Time Out New York
Top Critic

An extraordinary historical testimonial.

Full Review… | July 27, 2010
Village Voice
Top Critic

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.

Full Review… | February 23, 2012
Movie Metropolis

Absorbing and historic.

Full Review… | January 16, 2011

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

Full Review… | December 27, 2010

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.

Full Review… | December 15, 2010
This is London

Enemies incisively interweaves archive footage with revealing interviews...

Full Review… | December 13, 2010
Total Film

The matter-of-fact honesty is as unsettling as the nightmarish stories these people tell

Full Review… | December 11, 2010
Film Threat

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.

Full Review… | December 10, 2010
Daily Mirror [UK]

It won't leave your head for the whole journey home (and just the journey home from the cinema).

Full Review… | December 10, 2010
Little White Lies


Full Review… | December 9, 2010

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.

Full Review… | December 9, 2010
Radio Times

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

Full Review… | December 8, 2010
Financial Times

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

Full Review… | December 8, 2010

Intense and harrowing, Sambath's documentary will pin you to your seat.

Full Review… | December 8, 2010
Empire Magazine

A patient filmmaker gets his historic interview

Full Review… | September 28, 2010
Movie Habit

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.

Full Review… | August 10, 2010
Shared Darkness

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

Full Review… | August 4, 2010
Film Journal International

One of the most amazing investigative documentary films of all time. The interviews are few but of the highest quality

Full Review… | August 2, 2010
Monsters and Critics

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