Discussion question week 4
1. The final moments of the film become increasingly tense as Dickie’s friends begin to unravel Ripley’s lies. Did we all secretly want Ripley to succeed, or were we finally turned against him by his final murders?
2. Throughout this complex chapter, Schmid argues that often the murderers portray a fear or hatred of women as motive for their killing. How does Ripley alter or complicate Schmid’s argument?
