The Talented Mr. Ripley

Another late strike for me, it's 5:20 am, not much..

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Directed by: Anthony Minghella
Starring: Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Cate Blanchett

Synopsis: To be young and carefree amid the blue waters and idyllic landscape of sun-drenched Italy in the late 1950s; that's la dolce vita Tom Ripley craves - and Dickie Greenleaf leads. When Dickie's father, a wealthy ship builder, asks Tom to bring his errant playboy son back home to America, Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend, Marge Sherwood, never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own. After all, it's better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.

Oh my fucking god. That was awesome. I really loved it. At first it might be like "Catch Me If You Can" but it's deffinitely not. It's better in my opinion. It slowly developes into a real thriller. The suspense at some parts was literally killing me. Constantly thinking what's going to happen next and at most parts, I couldn't figure it out. Who is he now, what is he going to do next, will he get busted?? Those questions ran through my mind like Formula F1 car. And the ending.. It blew my mind away. Final Verdict?? Another must see. Perfect acting from Matt Damon makes it even greater of an experience.
