MOVIE REVIEW:The Silence of the Lambs
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
The Silence of the Lambs is a film directed by Jonathan Demme, adapted
from the Thomas Harris novel of the same name. It currently stands (at
the time of this review) as my favorite film of all time.
The plot follows FBI agent in-training Clarice Starling, who is called
in by Jack Crawford to get some inside collective information on the
mind of a murderer by imprisoned, former psychiatrist Hannibal "The
Cannibal" Lecter. Starling uses Hannibal's intellect to help track down
the serial killer dubbed "Buffalo Bill".
Starling is ambitious and keen, albeit somewhat naive. Lecter (my
favorite film villain of all time) is intellectual, courteous, and
classy. The more he and Starling interact, the more he learns about
her, and affects her mind, all the while helping her figure out the
identity of Buffalo Bill.
Howard Shore delivers a chilling score that blends quite nicely with
the theme and tone of the performances and pacing, similar to his great
score in The Fly (1986).
The film offers a brutally realistic aspect of the mindset of
particular murderers. It's frightening, and Anthony Hopkins and Ted
Lavine's performances in particular add a huge weight to the
My favorite scene in the film is when Starling tells Lecter the story
about the ranch and her lamb, explaining the title of the movie. As the
scene progresses, the camera switches back and forth between the two,
getting closer to Lecter's grim complexion every time it switched back
to him. The scene represents Lecter's slow but deep integration into
Starling's mind as he reads her further as she continues to talk.
The climax is exciting and throws you for a complete loop. At the end
of it all you just feel almost out of breath with widened eyes, no
explosion required. Lecter can be antagonizing when he wants to be,
vague, teasing, and observational. He does so much with such a limited
amount of space, and is like a ghost when he escapes his confinement at
The Silence of the Lambs is a character study, and a great one at that.|||

this is something else. this character Hannibal fits right in there
with Freddy Krueger, Michael myers, and Jason. it was a amazing film.
there is a lot of suspense and relationships going on in here. the plot
is a FBI trainee named Clarice is searching for a killer named buffalo
bill. he captured a senators daughter and Clarice goes to an
institution of the criminally insane to see Hannibal lector. he is a
smart man that might have relations with buffalo bill. Hannibal only
gets about 16 minutes of screen time and most of those 16 minutes were
with Clarice. during there interviews Clarice tells lector her past her
dark past that she has kept secret. this may sound strange but i think
that her and Hannibal have some sort of relationship. even though
Hannibal is gay, they have a sort of connection. and i think Clarice
feels secure with lector because Hannibal will listen to her. this is a
different film but it was very good and Anthony Hopkins who played
Hannibal defidently deserved the Oscar he got for that film. so did
Jodie foster for her role as Clarice and she got one as well.
pertaining to this film. see it
Truly a masterpiece of a Horror/Thriller. Anthony Hopkins as the
cunning, smart, torturing Hannibal Lector and Jodie Foster as the
quick, spirited detective make a good batch up in this fine film. Ted
Levine also does a gory job at the insane Buffalo Bill.
Alongside with other great Horror Films such as "Child's Play",
"Halloween" & "Cape Fear" Remake, this has got to be one of the most
creepiest, most intellect films i have ever seen in years.
Anthony Hopkins especially can protract his character well onto the
screen as he is only in the film for 15-20 minutes.
Silence of The Lambs is an unforgettable, chilling, memorable and
awesome film that I put on my top 10 List of Films. This film would
instantly get a 10/10 for it excellent plot, lovable characters, creepy
quotes and memorable scenes.
