Ripley's movie review

Beautifully filmed with very good performances, and a story that started off simple and got more and more complicated as the movie progressed. There was lots of sex and lots of nudity, including some full frontal courtesy of McGregor, but I don't understand why it received an NC-17 rating in some places. There wasn't anything that extreme.

I hadn't intended to watch this movie when I did. I thought I'd just take a look and see if it seemed worth my time at some point, but it caught my attention almost immediately and held it throughout. So yeah, worth watching.
