Day #89 - Silence of the Lambs

Hannibal Lecter: [on telephone] I do wish we could chat longer, but... I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye.

Movie #92

Silence of the Lambs

This is a horror masterpiece, and the first of its kind to appear on the project with Anthony Hopkins delivering a one-of-a-kind performance as Hannibal Lecter.

This classic is hypnotic and brilliant, as it features an intellectual battle between a young up and coming FBI agent and a brilliant cannibalistic psychiatrist/serial killer; which was acted brilliantly. The story is really brilliant, nerve-racking, intense and mercilessly scary.

This is great film that won the top five categories of the Academy Awards - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay.
