Avid readers of this blog will know Dafoe made the short list for my top baddies if I ever made a film. Here he's not really the bad guy. He plays what is described by a policeman in the film as a mid level dealer. Drug courier to upscale clients , he traverses Manhattan streets in the back of his drivers sedan catering to the whims of the rich. By night he fills and then disposes of journals of his innermost thoughts, his story as disposable as the stories he gets to listen to nightly. John Le Tour is Dafoe's characters name and his bleak tale of redemption one I recommend
