Angelina Jolie‘s First They Killed My Father (Netflix, likely spring release) is based upon Luong Ung’s 16-year-old book of the same name. It seems to be basically a back-to-the-Killing Fields piece about the Khymer Rouge Cambodian genocide of the mid to late ’70s. Pic will chronicle Loung Ung’s “early childhood in Cambodia as a five-year-old girl who witnessed firsthand the brutal and murderous tactics of the genocidal Pol Pot regime,” etc. Joilie is obviously obsessed with the idea of horrific punishment and torture visited upon innocents, which she explored previously in In The Land of Blood and Honey, which was about the Serbian genocide of the ’90s, as well as Unbroken. This may or may not have something to do with the fact that Jolie is privately into bondage and discipline, which a friend confided to me three or four years ago.
