Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
In this intricate and intelligent thriller, John Malkovich exudes oily charm as novelist Patricia Highsmith's psychopathic antihero Ripley, who was last brought to the screen by Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley. As the story opens, Ripley is a middle-aged aesthete living in Italy, accustomed to the trappings of wealth after enjoying a colorful career as con artist and hit man. When an old associate Ray Winstone asks him to assassinate a rival from the Russian Mafia, the reluctant Ripley persuades a terminally ill British family man Dougray Scott to do the killing. The hit leads to further complications, and the old pro eventually gets sucked into a vortex of violence. Director Liliana Cavani updates Highsmith's 1974 novel to the present day and elicits from Malkovich a multifaceted performance that makes an unlikable character oddly endearing. The acting is superb all across the board, in fact, yet Ripley's Game impresses mostly on the strength of its plotting, which has the effect of a snowball rolling downhill. At first, Ripley believes he can avoid getting his hands dirty by using a dying man as his cat's-paw; but when things start going wrong, they do so with escalating speed and complexity. A theatrical hit overseas -- but virtually unseen in American theaters -- Ripley's Game is far more imaginative and compelling than the cookie-cutter thrillers that parade across our screens these days.

    From the man himself..

    I must admit this movie with John Malkovich was good casting..also. Matt was not bad although I did like Alain Delon.. he captured my persona quite good. By the way Ripleys Game(love that title) was in fact a remake of another movie called My American Freind same plot I believe.. but with Dennis Hopper as Tom Ripley... have to see that movie to see how Dennis portrayed me.. To use a familar tagline at the end of the bond movies.. Bond will return.. so I say Ripley will return.. hmmm i feel a franchise in the works..

    The Sinister Mr. Ripley

    Tom Ripley is back, this time in the person of John Malkovich. The Highsmith-devoted purist in me finds him too sinister to be Ripley as she imagines him in her books; but he is far closer to the mark (and better) than the miscast Matt Damon who came chained to someone's moronic notion that Ripley can't be simply, finally, a psychopath but must be homosexual (note to screenwriter--grow a brain). Alain Delon may remain the closest thing to Ripley in celluloid, but Malkovich is mighty fine.

    Tom Ripley, anti-hero

    Elegant was the word TVGuide channel used to describe this. I agree. Malkovich is low key like pretty much always, & although Patricia Highsmith's novel dates from the Summer Of Love, what has been updated is well done. Ray Winstone is, as usual, excellent, & Dougray Scott is fine as the leukemia-ridden Jonathan.
