To me this film is good. Now I won't get too elaborate or pretentious, (as most writers or critics do on IMDb). What I liked about this film was that it was a simple con man story. Now a simple con man story is hard to do in my opinion, an almost impossible feat, so many people get caught up in the twists and explosions, and bs that the con man's life has to entail. Matt's role character is the, "wrong place wrong time sort of guy" (What a great line!) likable and looking for an out and a release from the 6 lifetimes of bad Karma. And that's what he does, there is a morality tale that isn't preachy or too expositional, that's just the way it is, you make your choices and maybe there's a bigger choice that's already made for you. The Cambodian landscape is a very "cracked windshield" sort of noir to quote Dillon. I really loved that he used his surroundings without fear. Bad luck for bad actions, in time working towards something inescapable, one's own choices to be a better person. Two thumbs way the hell up.
