Sometimes people can't look at themselves in the face. Who hasn't wanted to do what Mr. Duncan Roy has done and get away with it? So, the character isn't the most redeemable. He wasn't suppose to be. So the film was arty. It was suppose to be.

The recent Ripley film was a horrible homophobic diatribe. There are other films that addresses this subject, but none as personal, which is a good and bad feature of this film. I believe that at least Duncan Roy was as honest as he could be without reducing the picture into becoming a maudlin and sophomoric pastiche of other films.

I can believe that some people compare this to The Talented Mr. Ripley, but, It is much better and more complex. I really got caught up in this film, as a young guy from Essex learns rather quickly how to penetrate London's upper class. Lindsey Coulson gives a great performance as the young guys mum. Matthew Leitch, whom I was very unsure of in the beginning plays the part of the impostor bang on. The characters are all pretty interesting and keep you at attention.
The gem of this DVD is the triple screen version that shows all the subtleties of the characters and their interactions with each other. I watched it after the full screen version, and got way more from the film. See this and you will think Mr. Ripley was a beginner.
