"City of Ghosts (2002)
Con man Matt Dillon seeks out fellow thief and father James Caan to get his share, 7 September 2014
Congratulations to Matt Dillon on writing this film (City of Ghosts") (2002), directing in it and starring in it. Very good or even excellent job in all three categories. Very enjoyable film, loaded with atmosphere, good story, full of suspense, full of interesting characters, original. Hope he does more. However, although this movie was reasonably well-received by critics, itís 11 years since this project and thatís a long time. This film probably lost a lot of money.
"'City of Ghosts' is a neo-noir, but itís far from being limited by or repeating themes from that category of films. It explores several themes linked to humanity in general and Cambodia in particular where much of the filming took place."
