    overall, just an excellent film...

    A true "psychological thriller." In my opinion, this is one of the best films in recent memory. Both Matt Damon and Jude Law nail their performances, and the supporting cast here is excellent as well. I would agree with the reviewer who refers to this film as a study in psychopathology, and as such, I would highly recommend this film to anyone with the attention span and the time to give this one a fair shake.

    Loss of identity means new opportunity

    In "the talented mr ripley" everything seems to run smoothly for Tom, money, lifestyle, great and above all opportunity, until his $1,000 resources run short. He has to act fast...killing Dickie and assuming his identity achieves his goal and opens a new life for him, something he's always dreamed of.

    a great movie!

    i had no idea what this movie was about but I rented it and i loved everything about it. I had no idea that Matt Damon was going to kill Jude Law. I was like, oh my gosh! The soundtrack to this movie is great too. Matt Damon is so great in this movie. I always love how when Jude Law acts he has that ''flairtaious'' manner which is great also. I had NO idea Matt Damon could sing, (if it really is his voice.)Gwyneth Paltrow is great also.

    This one is a surprise

    I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it turned out to be. I had seen the trailers when the movie was out and didn't think it looked that enjoyable but I was wrong. This movie grabs your interest from the start and has you wanting to root for a psychopathic killer. Very strange indeed but its worth the time to watch this one.

    This movie is outstanding - it may take some intelligence to appreciate.

    Don't miss this one. The trailer that came out did not do the movie justice. The acting and directing are superb. The music is so well placed, the sound track is great. Very well done. One of the few I would like to give 6 stars.
