    • Item: Silence of the Lambs (R, 1991) movie Location: by: Famous

      Clarice Starling is Jodie Foster. Anthony Hopkins is Hannibal Lechter.

      That is really all you need to know about this film which has been spoofed a million times in sitcoms, movies, and TV programs.

      Silence of the Lambs is perhaps one of the most respected psychological thrillers to ever


      hit the silver screen.

      Jodie Foster was excellent as Clarice, perfecting her West Virginia twang and awkward tomboyish gait.

      I liked that Clarice and Hannibal developed a functionally dysfunctional relationship that pushed the boundaries of trust and violence.

      The scene that is most chilling to me, is the scene where James Gumb (played by Ted Levine) dances in front of a mirror ...


      • wearing the skin of one of his victims, with his genitals tucked between his legs.

        This scene elicited many gasps from the audience, who wasn’t exactly expecting that sort of thing.

        The killer was actually partially derived from Ed Gein, a real-life serial killer who was obsessed with the female form so much that he wore the skin of his female victims, danced naked in the moonlight,

        and performed sordid acts with the bodies.

        The music that is playing during this scene in Silence of the Lambs is what really set off the chilling mood.

        Everyone in this film fit perfectly.

        I could find no loose strings.

        And the execution of the plot was on point.

        This is one of the best movies I have ever seen.
