The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)

Tom:
The Silence Of The Lambs,1991,USA
Director: Jonathan Demme
Stars: Jodie Foster,Scott Glen and Anthony Hopkins


I'm going to say flat out that i believe "The Silence Of The Lambs" is one of if not the greatest Thriller ever made,The film is full of terrific performances,Amazing scenes and not to mention unforgettable characters. The film revolves around a young FBI agent by the name of Clarice Starling who is one of many trying to find a notorious killer by the name of Buffalo Bill who abducts women and skins them,to try and find the man she must question an even more dangerous killer named Hannibal Lecter. The Silence of The Lambs is an absolutely phenomenal film and is truly a masterpiece, The film features some unbelievable performances, Jodie Foster is absolutely amazing here,she gives a terrific performance as such a strong hero. Ted Levine is also terricly creepy as Buffalo Bill, but it is Anthony Hopkins with just over 16 minutes of screen time who steals the show as Hannibal. Hopkins give one of the most unforgettable characters in the history of film, The Silence Of The Lambs won the 5 major Academy awards in 1992. Overall Silence of The Lambs is an amazing film and possibly the greatest ever with one of the greatest villains in film.

Tom: 4/4
