The Talented Mr. Ripley

Posted by lori . No Comments

This is a psychological thriller about Tom Ripley whose talents lead to a bad end.  Set in the 1950’s, it is a gorgeous film that deals with the dark side of the human soul and the intoxicating power of charm.  It was interesting to me because even though Tom Ripley could be classified a “monster,” I was touched by him and found I didn’t want anything bad to happen to him.  This film left me feeling uneasy…and I loved it!  Do you have a favorite film where you find you’re a little more on the side of the villain than you’d like to be?
