As slithery and seductive a thriller as you'll find.
Arguably the most satisfying distillation of Highsmith's nastiness, ingenuity and humor, with the added dividend of Mr. Malkovich's diabolical charm and insouciance.
The movie may, late in Cavani's career, come to be seen as her best work.
Malkovich's elegantly malicious performance gives Ripley's Game a magnetic center.
Malkovich is perhaps the best, most chillingly precise Ripley to date.
Ripley's Game draws you in with its virtuoso performances and moody aura of menace.
Representative of the fear and loathing attendant to the death rattle of domestic culture.
John Malkovich [delivers] a performance that's as playful as it is perverse.
Não é surpresa constatar que John Malkovich se revela o melhor entre os quatro intérpretes do personagem.
Malkovich steals the show and director Liliana Cavani ... does a perfectly serviceable job.
Cavani uses a seedy, spying camera and beautiful European locations to draw us into the action and dress it up as art. She's a sick puppy, but she's good at what she does.
A stylishly intelligent thriller with an enthralling performance by John Malkovich.
