    Reader comments on City of Ghosts

    Subject: city of ghosts - almost
    Date: Jan 3, 2004
    Sender: thPrevious | Next

    Having travelled in the cambodian countryside and also having spent time in the capital the movie captures ambience, sort of, but spends too much time developing characters that don't really measure up. Dillion seems to be too comfortable in the situation, the other supporting roles are caricatures, but I did like Sok! Marvin could have been better developed as well as their relationship (Dillion and Caan). Should have been a whole lot more intriguing, seedy, chaotic perhaps and maybe could have captured true Khmer culture instead of the typical prostitutes, corrupt general carictures etc. A for effort on Dillions part including his inspiration and dual role as actor/director. C- for results. Liked it though cause it brought back great memories.
