Atom User Reviews for The Silence of the Lambs 30th Anniversary presented by TCM
Got to the theater, sat for 40 minutes after the movie was suppose to start only to find out it was canceled. Wasted 2 hours when it was all said and done. Never doing that again
Glad I was able to FINALLY see it on the Big Screen!!
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.
FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), brainiac cannibal Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) and tackle-tucking serial killer Jame Gumb (Ted Levine) make for one of cinema’s great ménages à trois.
It has been a good long while since I have felt the presence of Evil so manifestly demonstrated as in the first appearance of Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs.
