Overview

The Silence of the Lambs

In this multiple Oscar-winning thriller, Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI's training academy whose shrewd analyses of serial killers lands her a special assignment: the FBI is investigating a vicious murderer nicknamed Buffalo Bill, who kills young women and then removes the skin from their bodies. Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) wants Clarice to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), 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 this case and that Starling, as an attractive young woman, may be just the bait to draw him out. Lecter does indeed know something of Buffalo Bill, but his information comes with a price: in exchange for telling what he knows, he wants to be housed in a more comfortable facility. More important, he wants to speak with Clarice about her past. He skillfully digs into her psyche, forcing her to reveal her innermost traumas and putting her in a position of vulnerability when she can least afford to be weak. The film mingles the horrors of criminal acts with the psychological horrors of Lecter's slow-motion interrogation of Clarice and of her memories that emerge from it.

"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.

Of "The Silence of the Lambs" there is very little to say. This sordid little picture has for some reason captured woldwide imagination, set a seemingly endless cinema franchise in motion and made the repulsive cannibal Hannibal Lecter a household cultural hero, beloved by millions as if he were the next Triple Crown winner or an all-curative bran muffin. This bit of Jonathan Demme torture porn was actually not the first filmic appearance of Lecter; that would have been the neglected Michael Mann gem "Manhunter" which featured the dietetically-challenged madman in a quiet, brilliantly intelligent and completely frightening performance by the gifted Brian Cox. In "Silence", Lecter is portrayed by Anthony Hopkins who plies his craft with enough ham to feed an emerging nation. Jodie Foster portrays FBI agent Clarice Starling with a puppydog earnestness that might be endearing in a straightforward drama, but as atrocity builds upon atrocity, her whimpering antics become tiresome. The plot, a search for a serial killer named Buffalo Bill, doesn't make a great deal of sense (Lecter has no real importance to the case!), but Demme leaves no stone unturned when mayhem can be piled upon sadism, and by the time logic completely leaves the theatre (Foster's search through the killer's basement takes so long, it appears he must have a cellar the size of a basketball arena), the film drifts into obselescence right before our eyes. The fine Scott Glenn is wasted in a forgettable role.

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!

There is a song in this movie - during the part where the killer is getting dressed - its a great tune - hard driving song - anyone know who the group is and the name of the tune? Thanks

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!

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.

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.
