An accomplished, effective, grisly, and exceptionally sick slasher film that I can't with any conscience recommend, because the purposes to which it places its considerable ingenuity are ultimately rather foul.
Dude, seriously... Get some f-ing balls man.

'Accomplished', 'effective', 'considerable ingenuity', 'talent to spare': these descriptions and compliments are the last thing I'd expect any honest film critic to spout about a film they give a rotten designation. Perhaps you should let the minds behind the film reveal the intended thematic content. Did you notice that some of the more brutal killings in the film involved men (the two who die in the Lecter cell scene)? Do you know what a slasher film is?

You have got to be kidding me. A slasher film is a film in which people are killed in overly violent and unprovoked ways. Three people are actually killed on screen.You have the two officers. They weren't quite overly violent. They treated Lecter like crap, so why not? He had to make sure they wouldn't catch him. Also, he had to scalp Sergent Tate (I think), it might be Pembry though, so that he can successfully escape. It was so beautifully done. They practically let him out. Third person killed on screen is Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb. Definitely not unprovoked. He was going to kill Clarice. So she killed him. And she just shot him, that's not overly violent.By the way, not one woman is flayed on screen. Lecter was such a complex character, you can't call this a slasher film. Whoever hired you at the Chicago Reader is a clod.

I noticed this particular critic has a slight habit of contradicting himself. He says this movie is "accomplished", yet it is heavily implied that he doesn't consider it worth watching. And, as far as being a slasher flick... Well, I don't know what movie he saw but it sure isn't what the rest of us watched. As was previously stated in another comment, only three people were killed on screen. They hardly qualify as abnormal deaths, as it is. People are shot and beaten to death every day. About the father-daughter bond thing, that's doesn't even make sense. Fathers don't usually lust after their daughters, do they? Didn't think so. Lector implied, on more than one occasion, that he was sexually attracted to Starling. And I find it rather insulting that this critic would label Lector as merely a 'psycho', when his character has so much more depth. Also, I (along with many other movie goers, I'm sure) beg to differ about the comment of "not even the best performances and direction". If they "weren't the best", then how would one explain the numerous awards the cast and movie as a whole has won? I believe the little trophies speak for themselves...In conclusion, I can safely say that this critic has a poor taste in movies and should think twice before submitted such a halfassed review.

I think it's kind of unfair to bash a critic because they gave it a bad review, but it seems to me that the reason you didn't like the film was because of its blood/gore.
This film has substance and great acting, dialouge, etc. It's kind of unfair to overlook all of that.
