  In his typically incisive, insightful style — with an added streak of gallows humor — writer/director John Sayles delves into the corruption and hypocrisy of the American political system with "Silver City," taking special aim at the current electoral climate and a certain powerful American family. Dickie Pilager (Chris Cooper) — bumbling, inarticulate scion of a political dynasty — is running for governor of Colorado and driving his campaign manager Chuck Raven (Richard Dreyfus) crazy. Dickie's ineptitude infuriates his dad, Sen. Judson Pilager, who has pulled strings to facilitate the son's election. But nothing is more threatening to Dickie's candidacy than the discovery of a corpse floating in a scenic lake where a Pilager campaign ad is being filmed. What starts out as sly, well-acted political satire transmutes into a forceful neo-noir detective thriller. Raven hires investigative-journalist-turned-private-eye Danny O'Brien (Danny Huston) to find out if the dead body is a dirty trick by a Pilager enemy. Suspects include a talk-radio host, an environmentalist, and Dickie's rebellious sister Maddy Pilager (Daryl Hannah). With each interview, Danny learns more than would be safe for him to know, yet he continues to seek the truth. Co-starring Tim Roth as Danny's ex-editor; Maria Bello as Danny's lost love; Billy Zane as her new beau, a lobbyist; and Kris Kristofferson as an unscrupulous businessman.
