Ripley's movie review

Crudup was very good and very charming, Danes was good, and Griffiths was creepy. In fact, everyone in this movie played their parts extremely well. The story was interesting and the "death scene"** had both Ice and I riveted. I think I was even holding my breath. I'm not sure why I'd never heard of this movie because it was very good.

**That's not a spoiler.
