A penetrating, brilliant shivering film, that made me THINK, 9 January 2001

Who are you, Mr. Ripley? Why do you do the things you do? And what exactly do you want? I think the reason this film is so bothering, is that Ripley's problems concern each one of us. We want to be someone else. Life is always somewhere else. We try to reach this far place, but when we get there, it's not so charming as it was, and the long awaited treasure seems to move mysteriously to a new far place. And so, 'each man kills the thing he loves'. Perhaps the homosexual feels this problem - which concerns straight like me as well - more clearly, because his most elementary borders are fluid. He can be anything - but than he kills the thing he become, the thing he loved. (Forgive me my English and my being too philosophical, due to language problems).
