      A dark story with a unique taste of warm yellow tones

      First of all, I have to say that Jude Law was really too handsome when he was young, and he superbly showed the ruffian of the rich second generation. Although it is a simple plot, it grasps the rhythm very well. The film makes good use of voiceovers to advance the plot. The best use is when Ripley is crying and killing Pete, which is too tasteful. In addition, this film has a suspenseful color, the most classic suspense setting method: when will the murder be discovered, and when will it be...

      As for why Peter was brutally killed in the end, it was too cruel! I'm really in a mood! ! !

      Peter and Ripley are gay, they can't be known to Rogie when they are together, because it was ruled out that Ripley was gay, Rogie came with his family, and he wanted to lie, so he could only kill Phi Dee sadly. , didn't you find him crying when he lay on top of him and listened to his words that moved me too (the words he said were carefully worded!)? His expression was blank as he returned to the other room to sit. As if there was only an empty shell left. He's completely locked in a dark...

      Behind the scenes of the film <Excerpt from Encyclopedia & Movie Network> In 2000, it was still an era of discrimination against homosexuality, no wonder it was all nominated!

      · "The Genius Ripley" is based on Patricia Highsmith's 1955 novel of the same name, the first in a series of Ripley novels. Anthony Minghella developed a keen interest in the novel "The Genius Ripley" after completing the award-winning classic business card "The English Patient", and he believes that the story of an ordinary young man impersonating a rich man will make a good movie.
      Producers William Holberg and Tom Sternberg took up to 7 years to obtain the rights to...

      if we could go back in time

      "If I could go back in time, if I could do it all over again, I would choose to start with myself, start with borrowing a coat."
      When we finished watching the movie with Pitt's pain and Ripley's sobbing, we went back to When we look back at Ripley's monologue at the beginning of the film, it is not difficult to see that Ripley is not a complete bad guy. His blackening process and desire expansion process are caused by the temptation to escalate a little bit. result. From borrowing a coat...

      The dark side of human nature

      Tom ends up saying, "I'll never get out right, I'll be stuck in a dark basement forever?" Maggie says, "I don't think Tom Ripley will ever get into trouble" Peter says: " Tom Ripley can never be insignificant" Yes, Tom Ripley's purpose in life has been achieved. He got a great fortune, slept with Peter, played Gredio's mate in front of people, and no one knew what the truth was. The truth is forever locked in the dark basement, rotting and stinking like the corpses of Dick and Freddy. Sadly,...

      Every time tom sees that he is about to be dismantled, he is so nervous that he can't hold himself back, and then pauses and runs out to calm down. Matt Damon's innocent demo is so...

      Dark, sensitive, depressing. Love is the source of all sunshine and the maker of all darkness, isn't it? Three kills, one falling deeper than the last. How gorgeous is the sun, and how deep can the darkness be? The sound of Peter's fading away in the end was the tide coming in the dark night. Tears...

      I really don't understand where this genius is, can imitate handwriting and tone? Mouth twitching. A lie needs a thousand lies to make up for it. The feeling of being embarrassed, pleasing, and angered by the little person is well described. I watched him quickly and helped me several times more than he was anxious... and the relationship between Tom and Pete is also interesting, although it is a...

      A black-bellied self-abasement sufferer came out and murdered for the sake of a bully, and then for a pitiful story of reversible, reversible, and lost sunshine, I want to be you, so I love you; I love you, I can't wait to be you. Ripley is not as smart as the legend, he is not a genius of imitation, he is just a genius of infatuation. I love you and don't hesitate to let you never see my...

    As soon as "Genius Ripley" came up, people could not help but keep up with Ripley's own thoughts, greed and fear. ( Comment by Dazhong Daily   )
