The Talented Mr. Ripley Turns 20.

Happy (belated) birthday to one of the best thriller/scammer/dramatic movies ever, The Talented Mr. Ripley. Directed by the late Anthony Minghella, it came out 20 years ago last month.

Based on the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith, the movie follows Tom Ripley, a sociopathic scammer who steals the identity of rich playboy Dickie Greenleaf. Then, [spoiler]he ends up murdering three people as he jaunts about Italy trying to escape the police in a tight cat-and-mouse game..

~What happened to the cast?~

Matt Damon is [spoiler]problematic.
Jude Law is [spoiler]problematic.
Gwyneth Paltrow is [spoiler]problematic.
Cate Blanchett is [spoiler]problematic.

If you are looking for a thrilling, twisting and turning, visually stunning, tense murder drama, then you need to stream this ish on Netflix.
