The Silence of the Lambs (1991) Movie Review- Old Movie Reviews
My Old Movie Review series has returned for summer 2016! Kicking off the series in honor of this weekend’s release of Money Monster, here is my Movie Review for The Silence of the Lambs. Released in 1991 and the winner of 5 Oscars, the film stars Jodie Foster, who is the director of Money Monster. The film follows cadet FBI agent Clarice Starling (Foster) as she attempts to find and capture serial killer Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine) with the help of imprisoned cannibal psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) before Buffalo Bill kills his sixth victim. The Silence of the Lambs is a highly thrilling and psychologically stimulating horror-thriller with iconic characters and moments that still last in terms of effectiveness today. What do you guys think of the movie? Let me know down below!!
OVERALL RATING: 9.5/10 or A
The Silence of the Lambs takes a concept that’s been done before and makes it highly original with several added twists and interesting elements. The more fascinating scenes delve into the relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling as the two heavily rely on each other to accomplish their goals. The film delves highly into the disturbing and brilliant madness of Lecter and the character is brought to life by a career-best turn from Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins is unbelievably creepy and menacing from beginning to end; the closeup shots on his face and his dead-centered eyes that refuse to break gaze are incredible. Jodie Foster is also brilliant here, playing the determined agent who longs for more then just finishing the case; she seeks closure, which drives her character and shapes her performance wonderfully. Ted Levine is also fantastic as the disturbing Buffalo Bill. The film is very well shot and directed by Johnathan Demme as, the entire third act is not only highly riveting, but it also contains some of the best shocking and most intense scenes ever put on film. The score by Howard Shore is brilliant and the screenplay is nothing short of mesmerizing and absorbing. Overall, this is a highly intelligent film with every factor working to its significance! Highly recommended!
