(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

THE DONUT KING: This story of how a Cambodian refugee ended up starting an empire of donut shops in southern California actually tells two stories, one of the donut business and one of Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge; the non-sequential nature of the film may be confusing to some. Various refugees talk about their experiences in Cambodia, and having to steal or starve even in America until they were started in the donut business by Ted Ngoy. Various illustrations are clips from pro-American films, etc. Released 10/30/20; available on Amazon Prime streaming. Rating: 0 (-4 to +4)
