"Believe me, you don't want Hannibal Lecter inside your head."

Based on a novel of the same nam... read more

Clarice Starling is a top student at the FBI's training academy. Jack Crawford wants Clarice to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath, serving life behind bars for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Crawford believes that Lecter may have insight into a case and that Starling, as an attractive young woman, may be just the bait to draw him out.

" Notes: It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably rewatch it at some point. In fact, my wife is actually a huge fan of those thrillers involving serial-killers and I'm pretty sure this movie is her favorite one in this genre. Personally, I actually always had some mixed feelings about the damned thing. I mean, of course, it is a classic, it is very well made and entertaining and Anthony Hopkins was just great in a star making performance. And yet, this movie exactly"

"Hannibal the Cannibal is such a horrific character. And an elusive one too. The movie builds him up to be so scary but it's Anthony Hopkins that truly makes this character come to life. The tone and pace of how he talks and the calm exterior, especially when he kills. โ€ข Most well-known scene: the officer splayed across the cage. โ€ข Most well-known line: I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

OSCAR'S BEST PICTURE (571 movies items)
Beanie posted a review 5 months, 2 weeks ago

“This may all together, be the most successful horror film of all time. It's easily the most esteemed, as one of the few more gruesome pictures whose artistry shone through enough that not even awards ceremony snobs could look down their noses at it. It also irrevocably changed the landscape of popular film, making serial killer thrillers and police procedurals the bankable industries that they remain today. Some would argue whether or not it qualifies as a true horror film, but I see no argument for it's not being one. This is a film very different from most thrillers. It focuses itself almost solely on the psychological torment of it's characters, and thusly, it's most often trying to scare and unnerve it's audience, in a manner that only horror films ever do.But it's a refined, artistic ” read more
