Synopsis:
How do you turn an innocent person into a murderer? That's the diabolical game that Tom Ripley is playing in the sleek suspense thriller 'Ripley's Game'. Three years after walking off with millions of dollars worth of forged Renaissance drawings, Tom Ripley (John Malkovich) has settled into in the life of a cultured grandee in Italy. One night, however, Ripley finds his complacency disturbed while attending a local party. Chancing to hear a remark disparaging his taste, Ripley fastens his sights on the perpetrator: Jonathan Trevanny (Dougray Scott), a British picture framer from the neighbouring village.
While any ordinary psychopath might settle for a mild act of retribution, the game Ripley devises is far subtler - and infinitely more sinister. An unwelcome visit from a former criminal protégé, Reeves (Ray Winstone), offers Ripley his chance for revenge.

Psychological thriller with hints of black comedy - Ripley's Game review by Pete W

Spoiler Alert
25/09/2010

Broadly based on the Patricia Highsmith novel, except that Ripley has moved from France to Italy for some reason. Why don't film makers just film the Highsmith stories without "improving" them - the films would be much better. Biggest problem for me was Malkovich - too old for Tom Ripley, he can do the chilling psychopath pretty well but lacks Ripley's essential charm.
