Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

1 Oct

Meet Mr. Ripley, he’s a fine-looking man unfortunately he doesn’t think so, playing piano is one of his many best talents, but that’s definitely not his greatest one. Forging signature, telling lies and impersonating practically anybody outshine all of his other talents. And before i forget, meet Mr. Dickie Greenleaf  he’s filthy rich, he doesn’t work, he’s madly in love with jazz and just like his name he’s a dick. Mr. Ripley met Mr. Greenleaf they became friends, throughout their brief friendship Mr.ripley  found his new hidden talent, which is murder and deception.


               I want this job of yours, Tommy. I was
               just saying – You live in Italy, sleep in
               Dickie’s house, eat Dickie’s food, wear
               his clothes, and his father picks up the
               tab. If you get bored, let me know, I’ll
               do it!

               You really should go in, it’s marvellous.

               I’m fine.

     She approaches him, conscious of his isolation. She’s in a
     red bikini, and she towels herself dry as they speak.

               Are you okay?


     They watch Dickie and Freddie fooling around in the water.

               The thing with Dickie – it’s like the sun
               shines on you and it’s glorious, then he
               forgets you and it’s very very cold.

               So I’m learning.

               He’s not even aware of it. When you’ve
               got his attention you feel like you’re
               the only person in the world. That’s why
               everybody loves him. Other times…

    I love how creepy Matt Damon’s character is in this movie, and despite that I feel sorry for him at the end when he has to … you know.

      that creepy character works well with his acting, there’s two more Ripley’s film adaptation after this one, Ripley’s game and Ripley’s underground.
