The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) Film Review

The Talented Mr. Ripley

“Ripley” is Anthony Minghella’s masterpiece. The director’s pitch-perfect adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1955 novel boasts not only Matt Damon’s best performance as the sociopathic Tom Ripley but stunning turns by both Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jude Law.

Not being a huge fan of “The English Patient” (I’m with Elaine on this one), for me, “Ripley” is Minghella’s greatest achievement.

The stunning cinematography is by John Seale who started his career as Russell Boyd’s camera operator on Peter Weir’s “Picnic at Hanging Rock”.

The memorable score is by Gabriel Yared.
