The intriguing web woven in the Hitchcock-esque dark thriller, "The Talented Mr. Ripley," is engrossing from first to last enchanting scene. Matt Damon is stunning as Tom Ripley, a skilled liar and murderer. The film manages to make a character who does wholly despicable things fascinating and intriguing. The European setting casts a dreamlike pall over the film's events and the supporting cast is equally as strong.

Superior to 'Plein Soleil', the original filmic adaptation of Highsmith's pulp thriller, 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' is beautifully photographed, superbly acted, tautly written, and viscerally suspenseful. This film is undoubtedly the best Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never made.
