The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)This pairing comes at the suggestion of a listner! Joe Nash sent us a request to review a film we thought this one would pair nicely with, so we begin this pairing with one of only three films to win the "Big-5" Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay, 1991's "The Silence of the Lambs." Directed masterfully by Jonathan Demme, with the screenplay from Ted Tally (based on the novel by Thomas Harris), the film follows FBI Trainee Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) as she is recruited by the Head of Behaviorial Sciences, Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) to go and attempt to compile a profile of famous cannibal and serial-killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Sir Anthony Hopkins). The FBI is currently trying to locate the killer they call Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine) who has just kidnapped Catherine Martin (Brooke Smith) the daughter of a prominent senator. Through twists and turns, Lecter becomes a second mentor to Starling as they both pursue their individual goals, hers to track down the killer and save the senator's daughter, and his to escape! An amazing performance by both Foster and Hopkins, and one that made them household names from that point on!
