There’s a glowering darkness at the heart of Anthony Minghella’s sun-kissed, classically polished continental thriller, working from the same source materials as Purple Noon, but bringing the homoerotic subtext to the fore. Here Matt Damon’s Ripley lucks into a passport to the continental high life (and unrequited love) with epicurean rich kid Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law), though Philip Seymour Hoffman smells something funny: “Tommy! How’s the peepin’?

Screens as a part of In the Year of the Grifter.
