City of Ghosts

Dillon actually gives it a really interesting look and feel. With interesting yet relevant flashbacks that give it a moody narrative style. The soundtrack is really original, mixing old Cambodian pop songs with an almost country-sounding score that sounds like Bill Frissell.

There are themes of crooked business practices, gangsterism, military juntas, the trafficking of women, and even Cultural preservation.

"A businessman searches for his crooked partner in Cambodia." Starring Matt Dillon, James Caan, Natascha McElhone, Gerard Depardieu, Sereyvuth Kem, Stellan Skarsgard. Directed by Matt Dillon. 2002. 116 mins.
