Question Trees!

Most of you know I just came back from Cambodia, so that is not the question. The questions are

1) Which specific temple in the Angkor complex is overrun by the tree roots?

2) What major movie was it the scene of?

Bonus Question) How did it get its current name?

Would the answer to # 2 be a film starring Marlon Brando ?

This is Angkor Wat. Angkor is the general name for the complex. Angkor Wat is the most famous and oft photographed temple but there are many temples.

The Mystery photo is another one in the same complex.

It was indeed the scene for a "Lara Croft Tomb Raider" movie. I did not hear anything about Marlon Brando ...

But what is its specific name? And what does the name mean?

OK in response to incredible public demand out there ...

This particular temple is called Ta Prohm. The name has nothing to do with its origin or history. It is the name of the elderly monk who led Western archeologists to it a century ago.
