After a prolific career helming hard-hitting political themed dramas, British film director Roland Joffé made a huge splash with his 1984 feature film debut, "The Killing Fields" - an unflinching drama about Cambodia's savage Khmer Rouge massacres. Nominated for a stunning seven Academy Awards - including one for Joffé as Best Director - "The Killing Fields" ended up winning three (for Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing and Best Supporting Actor). After a white-hot start, Joffé's career cooled off significantly in the 1990s thanks to a string of box-office failures including "Super Mario Bros." (1993) and his 1995 adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter," starring Demi Moore. With the exception of the French biopic "Vatel" (2000), Joffé's career remained mostly dormant during the new millennium; that is, until the release of "Captivity" (2007), a psychological horrorfest - complete with controversial ratings drama before its summer release.
