The Silence of the Lambs October 8, 2006

Posted by Shujath in English, Movies, Reviews.

I’ve been wanting to watch this for quite some time but only got a chance a few days back. This is actually a regular crime thriller about the police looking out for a demented killer “Buffalo Bill” who skins his victims and does other wierd things to their bodies…what makes it different from the rest is of course the presence of “Dr. Hannibal Lecter” (Anthony Hopkins). Though Hannibal is spooky enough…..I felt the whole “Hannibal getting into your mind” stuff was overdone. For instance, Jodie Foster is warned again and again not to communicate with Hannibal at a personal level; but all Hannibal does is ask annoying questions about her past and that’s pretty much there to it. In any case, the movie holds your attention till the very end that’s good reason to watch this. BTW, Anthony Hopkins won the Best Actor Oscar for his role which is considered to be one of the shortest ever roles to fetch an Oscar. Also, this is the last movie to have won all five major Oscars…so you might want to watch it for this reason too.
