City of Ghosts

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Drama; Starring: James Caan, Matt Dillon, Natascha McElhone, Gerard Depardieu, Stellan Skarsgard; Director: Matt Dillon; Author: Matt Dillon, Barry Gifford, Michael Jones; Release Date Limited: 04/25/2003; Runtime (in minutes): 117; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: United Artists (MGM)

The notion of Matt Dillon making his directorial debut with a Graham Greene-style mystery set in Cambodia sounded like a joke. The joke, however, is on anyone with lowered expectations. City of Ghosts is a supple, intriguing, and beautifully staged movie. It features Dillon, in his most forceful performance since ”Drugstore Cowboy,” as a scoundrel with a guilty heart.
