The Killing Fields is a great, if horrific, movie. The main actor survived the Cambodian genocide, which killed up to 1/4 of the population in 3 years, by pretending he was a common working man. His wife died from labor complications, even though he was a physician. He could show no knowledge as an intellectual or they would both be killed on the spot.

He came to the US after VietNam liberated most of the Khmer Rouge death camps and won an Oscar for the movie, his first acting role in his life. He was later murdered by street muggers when he refused to part with a locket with his wife's photo. They were convicted the same day the death of Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot was confirmed.

If you liked the Killing Fields, try "First They Killed My Father". This one is another true story but is told from the point of view of a little girl. You really see more of the day to day life under the Khmer Rouge in it.

There is a chilling documentary call "The Act of Killing" that interviews some of the perpetrators of the Cambodian genocide who were never prosecuted and are still heavily involved in politics there now. It's interesting and horrifying at the same time.

'Fetishist' is super offensive. It's 2020, not 1950...
+4
Level 75
May 17, 2020
Why do you find the term offensive? The storyline on IMDb includes the line, "make men's fetish footwear" and I doubt that was written in the 1950s. I haven't seen the movie, but the definition of fetishist is "a person who has an irrational devotion or commitment to a particular thing."

Making the boots for drag queens is the in the center here, there is Lola the drag queen who comes to help with the business. The main issue is that using the word "fetishist" feels like someone who is unfamiliar or uncomfortable with the idea of men dressing up as women, just puts them all under one label. Not all drag queens are fetishists, or transvestites or "sexual deviants".

The play itself is honestly a little dated, as well; it's wonderful and sweet but it's very much how people were wonderful and sweet about queer people in the '90s, not now. I was involved in the drag community in that era and things were different, what constituted courtesy was different. I'm always reminded of the "gay tolerance" episode of the Simpsons ("Homer's Phobia") and John Waters' quote "Well, Homer, I won your respect, and all I had to do was save your life, Now if every gay man could just do the same, you'd be set." It was an era when an asshole "tolerating" wearing boots is an applause moment.

I don't think "fetishist" is offensive but it's not very accurate, and it does play into the idea that all kinds of cross dressing, whether as an entertainer or for all kinds of other reasons, including being trans, is sexual, which is an old, hoary, useless stereotype; but so does the show itself, to an extent.

Surely a better clue for "Kindergarten Cop" could be found that didn't include both "kindergarten" and "cop" in the clue. Such as: "Police officer goes undercover as teacher of 5-year-olds."

I think replacing "fetishists" with something like "drag queens" would be more precise and less controversial. The word "kinky" in the title is kinda misleading at a glance. In the plot, the boots aren't designed to give the wearers themselves sexual gratification, but instead to give wearers sex appeal as performers.

I think kinky boots is a bit idiomatic. I think of the old logo for the band the Kinks and think something's been lost in translation by the American question writer.

Not to nitpick but I think the question for both the Arnold and Colin Firth movies could be rewritten so they don't use the answers name.
