The Silence of the Lambs

Jonathan Demme's multiple award-winning The Silence of the Lambs gets a new DVD release that has only one major flaw. That flaw is a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround, and a Spanish soundtrack has been provided in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are available in all three of those languages as well. The extensive supplemental materials include a new documentary featuring interviews with the cast, deleted scenes, outtakes, a photo gallery, a collectible booklet, and a handful of trailers and television promotional spots. This movie is available in a different package with a widescreen anamorphic transfer and all of the same features. While the widescreen edition is preferable, the special features on the Criterion laserdisc edition of the film provide a more rounded look at the making of the film than the extras on either of these DVDs.

"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.

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!

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

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!

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.
