Ripley's movie review

Extremely violent and extremely graphic. I mean, extremely. Daniel Day-Lewis was very good (although detestable), Leonardo was ok, Diaz was so-so. I understand why this movie is important and why it received so many awards/nominations but I didn't like it at all. It took me two tries to get through it and I won't be watching it again.
