The Talented Mr. Ripley is more than just another slice & dice motion
It focuses on character interaction and
the run around games played on the law by Ripley, like cat and
mouse. There's no real cheap thrills; it's quite a few notches
It's a first-class psychological thriller,
the old-fashioned Hollywood way.
believe it or not, is a scissors up.
Skillfully crafted and directed, The
Talented Mr. Ripley is just that, thanks to a chilling performance
by Matt Damon, portraying a man who would rather be a fake somebody
than a real nobody.
Part chameleon and part pathological liar,
Tom Ripley takes no time at all to learn what he must to assume
the identity of the man he was hired to send back.
High intrigue with low expectations.
This movie appeals as much to the eye and
ear as the intellect. It teases with playful jazz themes (plays
"My Funny Valentine" and "Nature Boy").
Mr. Ripley is a cold psychopath who kills
to maintain the refined luxury life he has made for himself by
stealing another man's identity.
It's an intelligent, well-shaped picture
about the extreme perils of class envy and sexual panic.
