"I always thought it'd be better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody."

This is really amazing drama film, supported by an fantastic cast and story. It's kind of a mystery thriller as well when you think about it.

Matt Damon is Tom Ripley, one of the most complex and mysterious characters I've ever seen Matt play. In this film Mr. Ripley borrows a Princeton jacket... read more

"I always thought it would be better, to be a fake somebody... than a real nobody."

Patricia Highsmith's novel of the same name was held in high regard in the literary world. Anthony Minghella (R.I.P), celebrated director of The English Patient, has made a terrific psychological thriller out of the already outstanding source material. The Talented Mr. Ripley subsists as a terrifical... read more

This was one of the first Mind Fuck movies I have ever seen, and I suppose that that is a huge reason why it's one of my all time favorites. Even though, let's face it, it is pretty mind boggling, at least that is how I did and still do perceive it. Just the sheer perversion of Matt Damon's character taken into consideration and there you have a fantastic movie. The setting and costumes and editin... read more

" Based on the novel, by Patricia Highsmith, the movie centred on Matt Damon’s character, plotting the demise of his friend, Dickie Greenleaf. As glacial as the film is, never dull or involving. Plus there is the performances from Damon and Jude Law, too. “It’s better to be a fake somebody, than a fake nobody.”"

“Yes The Talented Mr Ripley is slow at times, but to me it is always absorbing and very rarely boring. The scenery is simply dazzling and really quite exotic, and the costumes and cinematography are gorgeous too. The music is superb, as is Anthony Minghella's direction. The story is very compelling with a number of interesting and well-handled scenes, while the script is both intelligent and thoughtful. The acting is excellent, Matt Damon does wonderfully in a difficult and perhaps controversial role, and Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett and Phillip Seymour Hoffmann are equally terrific. Overall, quite an excellent film. 8/10 Bethany Cox” read more

"Minghella era un calligrafo e come tale riesce ad annullare anche la carica sulfurea di Highsmith in un film molto "ben pettinato" ("sparleccato" si sarebbe detto una volta nel dialetto delle mie parti) che nella sua parte italiana sfiora il limite della sopportazione. La trama intrecciata dei rapporti interpersonali più o meno confessabili e un cast allora in rampa di lancio fanno sì che la non trascurabile lunghezza non si faccia troppo sentire così che alla fine l'insieme sia godibile nell"
