Playing Ripley's Game... Here's a picture of Reykjavik, Iceland, where I plan to spend Memorial Day Weekend. So... I was very enthralled last night by the first half-hour of the seldom-seen 2002 gem "Ripley's Game" with John Malkovich as our the brilliant, clever, and somewhat psychotic title character. Bedtime, not boredom, made me stop at 10pm, but I hope to finish tonight. Malkovich is probably far closer to Patricia Highsmith's original book version of Ripley than Matt Damon, colder and meaner. So far, oddly, he seems both more effeminate and less gay than Damon's version - there's the odd presence of a pretty young wife. More to follow.
