Gotham, also known as The Dead Can't Lie, is a 1988 American thriller film written and directed by Lloyd Fonvielle and starring Tommy Lee Jones and Virginia Madsen. The film was originally created for Showtime.


Down-and-out New York detective Eddie Mallard (Tommy Lee Jones) finds himself involved in the weirdest case of his career when a wealthy man asks for his help in stopping his ex-wife (Virginia Madsen) from harassing him. Mallard finds that the case may be too much for him when he discovers that the woman died ten years ago – and that he is falling in love with her.
