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

Michael Mann struck moderate success with a 1986 thriller entitled Manhunter. This film introduced us to a brilliant psychiatrist/cannibalistic serial killer named Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lector. First played by Brian Cox, the role was then filled by actor Anthony Hopkins.

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

One of the greatest films ever made

View all The Silence of the Lambs (1991) reviews
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.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (739 movies items)

" Nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor, and various other awards at the Oscar, the film which was based on the novel by Thomas Harris, Jodie Foster plays Clarice Starling, a rookie FBI agent on the search for the serial killer, Buffalo Bill. To do so, she seeks info from Dr. Hannibal Lector, played terrifyingly by Anthony Hopkins. A film that’s arguably grim and bleak some felt it was violent by far. The controversy, truly came in with those taking issue with the character, Jame Gumb and t"

Truly enthralling film and not one to forget

“I have seen some great movies, old or new. The Silence of the Lambs is an amazing one, while not my personal favourite of the year of 1991 it was a well deserved Best Picture win in my opinion.Jonathan Demme's direction is superb, the film is shot in a ceaselessly atmospheric manner and Demme never lets the suspense drop. The story from start to finish is enthralling, and the script is tense and thought-provoking.The Silence of the Lambs is wonderfully acted as well. Jodie Foster is the one who holds the film together and her performance here is one of her most excellent, and I mustn't forget Ted Levine who is very chillingly effective as Buffolo Bill. Anthony Hopkins however steals the film, it is his perhaps most iconic character and he proves that although he is in only a portion of the” read more

"Call it what you want but this Oscar-winning thriller is undisputedly steeped in horror. Hopkins and Foster enthrall in opposing lead roles. The story is as chilling and credible as it is thrilling and fantastic. A masterwork!"

"10.10. Tallenne Uusintakatselu. Teknisesti ja kerronnallisesti erittäin pätevä, mutta herättää tunteen, onko kuitenkin vähän mitäänsanomaton. Ei se ole, se ei vaan kauhean hyvin kestä uusintoja. Olin viimeksi nähnyt 11 vuotta sitten (kirjan lukenut pari vuotta tästä) ja paitsi että muistan kaiken sellaisenaan, herättää vielä tällaisia tuntemuksia. Anthony Hopkinsin ylinäyttely on toki jo ikonista, mutta aika hassua puhua mistään kaikkein hienoimmista roolitöistä koskaa"
