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.

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.

2020: Others (272 movies items)

"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"
