The Silence of the Lambs

Overview

This landmark 1991 film has been released before on DVD, most notably from The Criterion Collection. This new edition from MGM is a real standout. A superior transfer and sound design, along with a hefty amount of extras, make this disc one to buy. The film is presented in an anamorphic widescreen transfer with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The master print has some minor flaws, but very few. Aside from that, the movie has never looked better. The dark, moody locales have a brushed velvet look to them and the entire ...

Overview

This landmark 1991 film has been released before on DVD, most notably from The Criterion Collection. This new edition from MGM is a real standout. A superior transfer and sound design, along with a hefty amount of extras, make this disc one to buy. The film is presented in an anamorphic widescreen transfer with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The master print has some minor flaws, but very few. Aside from that, the movie has never looked better. The dark, moody locales have a brushed velvet look to them and the entire film has added atmosphere. For such a quiet, dialogue-heavy film, the Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound doesn't get many chances to soar, but there are times when it helps to create a truly terrifying ambience. There is no commentary track here, but the remainder of the extras serve to compensate for that debit. For starters, the disc includes an hour-long documentary on the making of the film. It is as complete a look at its creation as viewers are ever going to find, covering casting, writing, and filming in microscopic detail. Additionally, there are 22 deleted scenes and an amusing reel of outtakes. Also featured is the 1991 promotional featurette, a photo gallery, and trailers and TV spots. Lastly, Anthony Hopkins provides a humorous phone message in the character of Hannibal Lecter. With the other editions of The Silence of the Lambs out of print, this is the only chance to get it on DVD. Thankfully, it's well worth the investment.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
With Silence of the Lambs, director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Ted Tally, working from the Thomas Harris novel, peel back the layers on the horrors of everyday life and childhood, which begin to loom as large as their villain Hannibal Lecter's more outlandish crimes. Justice is served, but we feel no safer as a result. The Silence of the Lambs won all five major Academy awards, one of only three films in history to do so (the others were It Happened One Night (1934) and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)). Jodie Foster's tightly wound Clarice and Anthony Hopkins' Chianti-and-fava-bean-loving Lecter have become classic movie performances, and the film has taken its place as one of the most complicated and unnerving psychological horror movies. Horror films fans will also want to keep an eye peeled for cameos by directors George A. Romero and Roger Corman.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It has been a good long while since I have felt the presence of Evil so manifestly demonstrated as in the first appearance of Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs.

    Great edition for great movie

    Finally a special edition for the silence of the lambs that is well worth it. Comes with hours of extras including features never before released. Can't wait to see Hannibal Rising although probably wont live up to the book like Hannibal.

    The exquisite Hannibal

    "I love the suit." Quoth Hannibal Lector to the Ms. Senator after some inapporiate comments. The ultimate bad guy, real or imagined, Lector surpasses Manson as the lethal lovable mass murderder as he makes an ingenious phsychological manipulation of Agent Clarice Starling to go after Buffalo Bill and to pay off some old debts he had against the world. Great conclusion! Never a better horror movie.

    BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!

    I, for one, am completely obsessed with this movie. Anthony Hopkins does a fantastic job with this he's insane (pun). The relationship between Starling and Lecter is phenominal. Watch this!

    Buffalo Bill's Dance Song

    The song that is playing when Buffalo Bill is dancing and singing to is called ''Goodbye Horses'' by Q. Lazzarus. I did a bit of searching myself and when I found out I thought I would share the info with you. Hope you enjoy it.

    This movie deserves more than an Oscar!

    Jodie Foster delivers what could be the best performance of her life as FBI trainee Clarice Starling. Scott Glenn plays FBI agent Jack Crawford, who is on the look for on-the-loose killer Buffalo Bill. Jack decides to send Starling into a prision to try to get answers from charming Serial Killer Dr. Hannibal Lector (played really good by Anthony Hopkins). Hannibal talkes to Clarice, which never happened to anyone else before. Hannibal leads the FBI on a chase, but Clarice is told the ''real details'', although it's a mind game. Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, and director Johnathan Demme give oscar winning performances that got the best Picture of the Year. This movie is thrilling and heart-pounding. When Hannibal is sent to another prision about halfway through, something happens that you WILL NOT leave your seat for. The final climax is great! DEFINATLY see it!

    I Ate His Liver With Some Fava Beans And A Nice Chianti

    This guy is great, Anthony Hopkins (oscar winner Silence of the lambs) gives a performance that could make you wet the bed. He plays as Dr. Hannibal Lector. When we first see Hannibal Lector he is already in prison. We don't really get told alot of how he was caught (watch ''Manhunter''). As the movie progresses and we see a nicer side of Hannibal we subconsciously believe he is not a terrible person. Well all until he kills 2 guards and escapes(That act leads to the movie Hannibal). Alltogether though, manhunter is more focussed on Hannibal Lector while silence of the lambs is focussed on the kidnapper who we also find a little abnormal. watch the movie to get your socks knocked off.
