I love psychological thrillers. Here are three of my favorites:
The Talented Mr. Ripley. Great portrait of a psychopath in action. He's a manipulator, a chameleon, impulsive and a natural predator.
The Silence of the Lambs, Maybe best ever villain and protagonist. "People will say we're in love."
A Clockwork Orange. Talk about manipulation! First we're taught to hate and fear Alex, then to pity him. It's a film about conditioning that conditions the viewers.
Love the photo of Alex. The film opens with a shot of his face and it's terrifying.
