VERY SAD TODAY.






that's me he's hugging, not Tom Ripley. At least in my head.

IN THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY



The newly expanded role of Peter Smith-Kingsley, a British playmate for Tom who enters in the late stages of the film, puts a whole new spin on Tom's movement into his new world. While the acting is uniformly fine, the prize of the hour goes to newcomer Jack Davenport, who brings this character to life with such exquisite sensitivity that he more than justifies the touchy business of Tom's gayness. I wouldn't be surprised if you hear the name Davenport again sometime soon. If Anthony Minghella weren't such a smart writer and director, the changed emphasis might have obscured the icy brilliance of Tom's amoral talents. But Minghella knows a good story when he sees one--his last triumph was the sweeping, stony The English Patient-- and he treats Tom Ripley's tale like David Lean on an epic bender. The thriller story becomes woven into a gorgeous, glorious travelogue through the high points of Italian sightseeing, circa 1957. And, I'll admit, I'm a sucker for a pretty shot of Roman sunlight.

We've seen Peter's great apartment, now here's Toms. For a poor musician he lives pretty large.

This one is by Inveigler81 and the song "New Men" is perfect for the story.

Anyway, I thought that I would post these before we left. Enjoy.

This is an excellent fan video. Not much Jack, but the music works so perfectly with the tone of the movie. Did I mention that this is my favorite movie? God, you guys must be so bored with me. hehe.




Now to make up for the lack of Jack in the video, pretty Jack pictures....

I know you probably all want to beat me around the head for all the Ripley I keep posting, but I can't help it. I so LOVE this movie. Here are screencaps of the first meeting of Peter and Tom. And I found the most amazing video on Youtube. Turistando took the soundtrack and put it to lovely clips of the movie. Please notice how absolutely beautiful this movie looks and sounds.

I call this collection Ripley Booboo cause Peter lovingly takes care of a cut Tom gave himself while planning to kill Marge. Of course, Peter did not know that. By the way, Jack can take care of any of my booboos at any time no problem. As a matter of fact, I have this bruise here on my...........

Continuing my mad obsession with The Talented Mr Ripley, here is the scan of Entertainment Weekly December 17, 1999.  Jack is actually mentioned in this article and there is a photo of him, but the staple was right through his nose - ouch.  If you have not yet seen this movie, please do.

Continuing my Ripley obsession, here is a scan of Total Film #38.  If you have not seen this movie, please watch it.  Not only for the incredible & sweet Peter Smith-Kingsley (Jack Davenport) but for the amazing story, scenery, music etc.  Enjoy!

 I've posted before about what a great director Anthony Minghella was and what a great loss his death was.  I came across this interview while researching The Talented Mr. Ripley.  He made 2 of my most favorite movies, Ripley and Truely, Madly, Deeply.  One can only imagine what great movies he could have made with more time.  Scan of Empire magazine March 2000.

I purchased this magazine hoping for some Jack Davenport, alas no Jack.  However it is a really good article and well worth the read.  Scan of Advocate Magazine January 2000.
