From Library Staff

Patricia Highsmith is the kind of writer that makes you wonder, who is the real villain? Jude Law and Matt Damon vie for the most villainous in Anthony Minghella’s The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Bit of a disappointment after Purple Noon (Plein Soleil) from 1960. Good performances by Matt Damon, Jude Law, Jack Davenport, and James Rebhorn. I felt that this adaption spread itself thin over too many characters (or actors), instead of focusing for the most part on Ripley. He is the interesting character. Anthony Minghella wrote the screenplay and directed the film, and chose to explore Ripley's sexuality to the degree that he sacrificed much of the story. Still worth watching though. Almost forgot - Philip Baker Hall (Mr. Bookman the library cop from Seinfeld) has a pretty good part.
