The notion of Matt Dillon making his directorial debut with a Graham Greene-style mystery set in Cambodia sounded like a joke. The joke, however, is on anyone with lowered expectations. City of Ghosts is a supple, intriguing, and beautifully staged movie. It features Dillon, in his most forceful performance since ”Drugstore Cowboy,” as a scoundrel with a guilty heart.
