Beasts of No Nation
This movie is an intense war drama, directed by Cary Fukunaga. Released in 2015, the movie tells the story of a child who is recruited as a soldier (played by Abraham Attah).

First They Killed My Father
The genocidal atrocities of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia in the 1970s are not very well covered by Hollywood. First They Killed My Father is one of the few Hollywood movies with a plot revolving around 1970s Cambodia. Angelina Jolie is one of the film’s producers. She has a close affiliation with Cambodia, having visited the country during the shooting of Tomb Raider. The movie, released in 2017, is the film adaptation of Loung Ung’s book by the same name. Loung Ung is a survivor of the Cambodian genocide. The film depicts the harshness of the Khmer Rouge from the perspective of the then 7-year-old Loung Ung. Given the subject matter, it is unsurprisingly a fairly depressing movie.
Da 5 Bloods
This is another violent war movie directed by Spike Lee, released last year. The movie tells the story of four elderly war veterans returning to Vietnam to recover the dead body of their cherished squad leader (Chadwick Boseman). They also go there to search for a gold shipment they buried in the Vietnamese jungle during the war decades back. The movie has some witty moments but is overall a very emotionally absorbing tale. The director also makes great use of telling the main characters’ backstories through flashbacks.
