As I just saw this movie for the first time Wednesday, I would like to know why the hell nobody has been banging down my door or screaming at the top of their lungs about how great this movie is. This has become s a love affair my friends.
I?m probably the last person to watch this, ever, so I won?t go into too many specifics. It?s perfect, in every way. The two things I liked best were Jodie Foster?s and Anthony Hopkins performances. While I wouldn?t say I was scared, I was seriously creeped out, and Jodie?s unease around Lecter only adds to the tension. Their relationship is bizarre, but incredibly interesting. Do I really need to continue?
This is a real gem, and a defining movie experience for me. It crept it?s way into my heart and #3 favorite movie slot.
