One of the strengths of First They Killed My Father is its matter of fact quality. Only very late on does Jolie indulge in the kind of melodramatic flourishes you'd expect in a Hollywood movie on the same subject.

The best work Jolie's done yet. Still, every time Loung's captors holler, "You must have a revolutionary spirit!", I wondered if Jolie ever feels the urge to make truly rebellious art.

This is an accomplished and moving and solid drama from a director who seems on the verge of giving us a great movie sometime soon.

As director, Angelina Jolie brings to life all the horrors of revolution and war, told through the point of view of a five-year-old Cambodian who later wrote a memoir of the tragic events she witnessed during the Pol Pot regime.

Jolie the woke celebrity and Jolie the artist seem caught at a crossroads with this film, juggling instincts that put her inner Terrence Malick and Ken Burns at odds with one another.
