Ripley's Game

Ripley's Game ★★★ 2002 (R)

Tom Ripley (Malkovich) is still a sociopath, but now he's older, more refined, icier, married, and (not surprisingly) successful. When he overhears an insult by the host, Trevanny (Scott), of a dinner party, he decides to make him pay. His opportunity comes when British gangster Reeves (Winstone) asks him for an anonymous assassin to take out a Russian mobster. Ripley, knowing Trevanny is terminally ill and broke, suggests him as the hit man. Trevanny accepts, but is betrayed by Reeves, which conflicts with Ripley's sense of honor, who then intervenes. Malkovich is perfect as the steely Ripley, and has good support from the rest of the cast, as well as an enjoyably intricate plot. 100m/ C VHS, DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
