FBI trainee Clarice Starling is assigned to help find a missing woman and save her from 'Buffalo Bill, ' a psychopathic serial killer who skins his victims. Clarice attempts to gain a better insight into the twisted mind of the killer by talking to another psychopath, Dr. Hannibal "The Cannibal' Lecter, as he used to be a respected psychiatrist. FBI agent-in-charge Jack Crawford believes that the mind manipulator Lecter may have the answers to their questions to help locate the killer. Clarice must try and gain Lecter's confidence before he will give away any information. But, he will only help Clarice if she feeds his morbid curiosity with details from her own complicated life.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Here is a chance to fall in love with the young Jodie Foster! She plays a naive FBI cadet that must enlist the assistance of the cannibal Dr. Hannibal Lecter in order catch another serial killer. Thomas Harris’s tale on film is not for the faint at heart.

Excellent! One of the best films to date, and no matter what year, Hopkins and Levine will chill you to the bone with their sadistic and disturbing portrayals of the most unnerving and scariest criminals of horror fiction. And Jodie Foster makes you hold on every second with her brilliant acting of Clarice Starling. AA++++++++++ all the way. One of the best films ever.

Finally got around to watching this, and thoroughly enjoyed it (despite my usual avoidance of horror films). Something in Hannibal's voice and the way he said Clarice's name is what made the character for me-- as well as the frequency with which he repeated her name, as if enforcing control over her.

Though, I don't know if it was an issue with the disc or my DVD player, but unfortunately the movie skipped for several minutes at two parts; once near the beginning, and again at the climax. Disappointing, but not ruinously so.

Let's face it here - The Silence Of The Lambs was, indeed, a perfect example of an average-to-mediocre horror story being praised to the high heavens... And, for what?.... Like, c'mon - There really wasn't any sound reason to justify all of the preposterous acclaim that The Silence Of The Lambs has managed to garner for itself.

It was Anthony Hopkins and his "oh-so" refined and dignified cannibal character who just about totally ruined this film for me.... Hopkins' little "see-all/know-all" (borderline clairvoyant) Hannibal Lecter, with eyes set wide enough to make even Marty Feldman blink, was an absolute joke as far as a movie-psycho goes.

Best Hannibal Lector film, but what's more, one of the most fantastic suspense/horror thrillers packed with fantastic performances. Creepy to the core with an obvious villain, an obvious heroine, and .... then there's Hannibal. By no means a good person, but interestingly apt and willing to assist in bite-size portions, in just the right scenarios. Intriguing and worthy of its Best Picture win. Highly recommended.

Pretty much a perfect serial killer/crime drama. If you haven't seen this and like the genre, you will love it. Great acting and story. Graphically violent and gorey. This movie deserved all of it's accolades. Anthony Hopkins as Lecter has become a pop culture icon for the ages.
