Very Well Written
I have seen lots and lots of films, but none were ever so well written like Silence of the Lambs. The characters are amazing and there is a lot of shown development with them, especially with Hannibal Lecter, who has to be one of cinemas greatest Villains. The film tells a gruesome story that you want to leave your memory immediately after you've watched it.

The Silence of the Lambs is more a thriller than a horror. There are few intense/scary/suspenseful scenes, but besides that it's just a story of a creepy mystery. Beware an awesome plot twist awaits you.

I'll would like to keep on writing, but I'm having an old friend for dinner…
Excellent Movie!
This movie is excellent. It is one of my favorites. My future career is going to be working as a C.S.I., and Criminalist and Parole Board member. This movie has a lot things in it that are related to these things.

The actors and actresses did a great job in this film, as did the filmmakers and other crew members. I hate those two physcopath Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Jame Gumb, a.k.a. Buffalo Bill who skins his victims. These victims are young women who are a size 14. He also is a resemblance of Ted Bundy. That is he spots a woman ans puts his arm in a cast pretending he's injured and needs help. When they help him he attacks. Great Movie!
Silence is Golden
Funny how I hadn't seen 'Silence Of The Lambs' ever since it was just finishing it's theatrical run back in 1991. Hopkins, Foster and Demme have gone on to do other things of course, but I recently caught this again on DVD again, and man, this still has a lot of ability to scare you out of your wits. Anthony Hopkins is just wild in his Academy Award winning performance. I find it amazing that I was getting chills up my spine just from watching him play Lecter. This is the best of his Lecter performances, as the other movies (that would be Hannibal and Red Dragon (though they were okay) lack the dramatical oomph so prevalent in this one. One wonders how on earth Hopkins could do this then do something like a light comedy like Spotswood (which is exactly what he did). If you haven't seen this in a while, do yourself a favor.

Watch it again.
Classic Mystery Thriller
The financial success of the movie speaks for itself, with twists and turns giving deeper insight into one or more of the main characters. Two truly evil, intelligent, and depraved characters are revealed along with the difficulty catching and keeping them locked down in safe conditions. The richness of each character and displaying the combination of skill and luck leading to identification and capture of "Buffalo Bill" is extraordinary.

Anthony Hopkins displays the highest level of acting skill, Ted Levine adds reality as Buffalo Bill, and Jodie Foster does a great job of leading the viewer through her character's life back and forth between the FBI Academy's controlled environment and out in the unpredictable real world dealing with psychopaths. The realistic performances by all of the supporting actors combines to keep the viewer glued to the screen.
Thrills not Gore
This is definitely a film that proves you don't need tons of blood and gore to have a good suspense/thriller film.I was never a fan of this kind of movie genre but this movie caught my attention from start to finish. I couldn't look away or sleep well at night. This is a movie based off a few real life killers which makes things even scarier if you ask me. Anthony Hopkins performance as the deranged genius Hannibal Lecter earned him a well deserved Academy Award and the same was true of Jodie Foster's performance as Clarice Starling. This film should go down in history as one of the greatest suspense films in the history of cinema.
Have the lambs stopped screaming?
A masterful combination of acting, directing and writing. Storyline is very engaging. Hopkins did a extraordinary job in Dr. Lecter's shoes, who manages to make the "cannibalistic psychopath" kind of a hero. Jodie Foster makes Starling the most interesting to watch. The best part was portrayal of Lecter and Starling coming closer and closer in bizarre exchanges by making Starling to unveil her deep secrets, Lecter valued this relationship by not hurting her. The Silence of the Lambs is a must see, one of the best thrillers I have ever seen.
This is one fantastic movie. Anthony Hopkins plays the brilliant, all knowing, Dr. Hannibal Lecter who 'helps' in his one unique style(which becomes clearer each time you see the movie), rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling track down 'Buffalo Bill', serial killer. Lecter, the genius that he is, perceives Starlings inner demons and want to know more about her in exchange for information about the serial killer. His line: "Quid pro quo, Clarice. Quid pro quo. You tell me things, I tell you things" is my (and my wife's) favorite. Lecter engineers events and makes a daring escape which is gripping to watch. Hopkins portrayal of Lecter has been voted by AFI as the the number 1 villain of all time and deserves it all time. The film deservedly won Oscars for best film, best director(Jonathan Demme) , best actor, best actress and best screenplay. The only other film to have won all five top Oscars was 'It happened one night' (1934).
A Potpourr of Vestiges Review: Hannibal - The Cannibal
Silence of the Lambs is a quintessence of a profound character study and a rare and vivid demonstration of an actor's subtle brilliance and his improvisation in manifestation of a nebulous entity (Lecter), almost single-handedly immortalizing it and in the process elevating himself to a position of unqualified envy and ubiquitous acclaim. In fact, one is likely to suffer, either from inarticulacy or verbosity while describing Anthony Hopkins portrayal of sadistically sophisticated Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Lecter's trademark, his wide open glacial eyes, devoid of any emotion, not only makes him deviously equanimous, but also egregiously peculiar. The fast, slurping-type sound invented by Hopkins that Lecter does, is as fascinating as it is chilling and Lecter's infamous "Good evening, Clarice", is as enthralling as it is vicious. Anthony Hopkins's performance is the shortest ever and the most memorable to win an Oscar in the leading category.

Hopkins as Lecter, is incontrovertibly and incredibly at the top of his game and it is his brilliance that gets the best out of the other actors, especially Jodie Foster. In fact, it won't be a hyperbole, that Anthony Hopkins's portrayal of cannibalistic Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs and more so in its sequel, Hannibal (which is my favorite of the series, as the story completely revolves around Lecter, giving him more exposure), is one of the best, the world of cinema has ever seen or offered. In spite of having some of the most gruesomely disturbing and viciously graphic sequences, Silence of the Lambs, is one of the most decorated and enthralling movies of all time. A must watch for avid fans and eclectic viewers.

A dynamite Hollywood thriller.
This is deservedly one of the most popular and praised of all the entries in the worn-out "cop vs. killer" genre, and represents a career high point for its key participants. It's especially noteworthy that it should have swept the five major Oscars for the year of its release, considering that the Academy wouldn't normally award such acclaim to a thriller with often grim and disturbing content - a tribute to how well crafted it is. Also worthy of a mention is the way that this film put the Behavioural Sciences unit of the FBI on the map - that unit devoted to the study of the most deviant "human" beings among us. Director Jonathan Demme shows a great skill for the genre, and with the assistance of a first rate crew creates some eerily effective suspense. Based on the novel by Thomas Harris, it stars Jodie Foster as an eager beaver young FBI trainee who is sent by her superior (Scott Glenn) to interview an imprisoned murderer, the intelligent, cultured psychopath Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), in the hopes that he can lend his insight into the activities of "Buffalo Bill" (Ted Levine), a serial killer currently on the loose. Other than a music score by Howard Shore that is a little *too* over the top and manipulative, "The Silence of the Lambs" hits all the right notes, telling a story in a taut and convincing manner. The subject matter admittedly is not to every taste - especially when one thinks about what Bills' ultimate plan is. The editing (by Craig McKay), production design (by Kristi Zea), and cinematography (by Tak Fujimoto) are exemplary; among the scariest scenes are Clarices' (Foster) search of a storage space, and the climactic action where agent and maniac are finally face to face (and the sequence leading up to that). Of course, the real meat of the story is the unusual relationship between the charismatic Lecter and the determined Clarice, as he demands she divulge personal information in return for his thoughts on the Buffalo Bill case. Lecter is a truly memorable character, from his choice of entertainment to the way that he gleefully toys with those people that he holds in contempt. Hopkins and Foster are both very effective in these parts, although the contributions of the supporting cast absolutely should not go overlooked. Given the way that Lecter dominates the proceedings, it's important to point out just how extremely creepy Bill is; his performance brought character actor Levine to real prominence. Brooke Smith is very good portraying a would-be victim who actually tries to use her wits and fight back in some way. Also appearing are many other familiar faces: Anthony Heald (as the smarmy jerk in charge of the insane asylum), Diane Baker, Kasi Lemmons, Demme regulars Charles Napier and Tracey Walter, his old mentor Roger Corman (as the director of the FBI), Frankie Faison, Dan Butler, Chris Isaak, and Daniel von Bargen. Even at just under two hours long, this is actually pretty taut in terms of pacing; there's no filler at all, just some very potent entertainment. This was preceded by another Harris adaptation, "Manhunter", in which Brian Cox played Lecter, and would be followed by "Hannibal" and, after that, "Red Dragon", another film version of the source novel for "Manhunter". Some people tend to prefer "Manhunter" and consider it superior; this viewer merely prefers to think that they each have their own heavy assets. Nine out of 10.
Brilliant Psychological Thriller !!!
Classic Psycho Drama which attacks the senses and plays mind games with whomever watches it ! Anthony Hopkins(Hannibal Lechter) gives a Tour De Force performance as the ultimate misguided Psychiatrist from Hell, whose ambitions vary from moment to psychotic moment. Lechter known for his exceptional perception,is visited by Clarice Starling (Jodi Foster)a new recruit for the F.B.I., that needs to get Hannibal's insight. Even though Hannibal is incarcerated for most of the movie, you feel that he is in total control. Hannibal gives Clarice clues thru the movie, to solve the "Buffalo Bill" case, and to help her advance her career and deal with her psychological problems. In effect he becomes her psychiatrist behind bars, interesting. Watch for their third meeting, where Hannibal's head seems to be floating on the reflective glass, really creepy ! Everyone in the movie , from her boss, Scott Glenn(Jack Crawford) to Jame Gumb(Buffalo Bill), is either seeking advancement or control of their own reality, amazing !!!

As Clarice gets closer to solving the case, Hannibal escapes, and then things really get out of control !!!

Terrific ending in the home of "Buffalo Bill" will leave you on the edge of your seat !!! Great Directing by Jonathan Demme and OUTSTANDING Editing by Craig McCay, take you into the world of Starling and Lechter, but will not let you totally escape from their presence, not a safe movie !!!

There are a few flaws, as to how Lechter gets the pen, or how he knows where to phone Clarice, but they are minor.

Ted Levine should have gotten Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, this role could have typecast his career.

This movie should be viewed by Adults ONLY !!! I highly recommend "Silence of the Lambs", Winner of the TOP 5 Academy Awards, only 3rd movie in history to do so !!!
