These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Magnificent Bastard: Most evident in Ripley's Game, where Tom takes revenge on an artist who snubbed him at a party by bribing the man's doctor to declare him terminally ill. Then, Tom manipulates the artist into committing murders for him in order to have money to support his wife and child once he dies.
Nightmare Fuel: The whole second half of the film version of The Talented Mr. Ripley. Ripley's whole predicament just keeps on getting tenser and more grimly farcical until he literally has to keep six different parties from running into each other for risk of exposure... all for telling a little white lie.
