can be criticised of many things, but wasting locations and local talent is not one of them

The surprise is not necessarily that Dillon has a unique voice, but rather that the voice is so bizarrely dark and uninhibitedly exotic.

Shows some promise in that it wants to say something, but there are plenty of forgettable moments to go along with it.

There's nothing interesting about this half-baked noir plot...

The movie fairly oozes with atmosphere, and its cast contains enough colorful characters to make Casablanca blush.

Arizona Daily Star

Longtime actor, first-time director Matt Dillon relates an urgency and passion behind the camera, intent on telling us one story while showing us another.

Salt Lake Tribune

Dillon is so eager to show the duality of Cambodia, the grace and the grime, that he sacrifices major story elements to do so.

There is so much to admire in Matt Dillon's City of Ghosts that the feeling left over after watching it is an unsettling sense of disappointment and unfairness.

One Guy's Opinion

Though 'City of Ghosts' can't match its models, it takes us close enough to Greeneland to be a worthy homage and an impressive, though flawed, debut...well worth a look.

While it won't be remembered as great cinema, it is actually a tight piece of film noir.

A bit of exotic neo-noir, clunky in parts and long, but often engaging and artfully atmospheric as well.

While the film is not short on ideas or implications, none of them is fully developed, leaving us little but atmosphere and warm whiskey to drink in.

In the end, it becomes clear that the missing ingredient in City of Ghosts is nothing more than some additional directing experience on the part of Dillon.

A long, winding, but decently layered modern film noir.

City of Ghosts dons a facade of independent filmmaking, but the core screams Hollywood rehash.

It's the only film in which James Caan attempts karaoke in Cambodian. You'll want to plan your bathroom break for that scene.

City of Ghosts doesn't quite work, but it has its moments, and some of them just may be worth the price of admission.

Though he has evolved beyond his star peak, [Dillon] remains a strong actor and is a gifted director.

Fortunately, Dillon was smart enough to hire one of our best living crime authors Barry Gifford to co-write the screenplay.
