The Silence of the Lambs Movie Review

Subscribe To:
Is it a modern masterpiece? Did it deserve to sweep the four big Academy Awards? Is it one of the best thrillers ever made? A definitive maybe to all three questions. The Silence of the Lambs is definitely an experience that gets better and better each time you watch it, and it paved the way for some of the greatest sickos of 1990s cinema. Hopkins' Hannibal Lecter has entered the annals of pop culture and will never be forgotten, but it's really Jodie Foster's frail-yet-foolhardy protagonist that carries the film.

Silence's influence can be seen in virtually every thriller made today. So even if you think Anthony Hopkins didn't deserve a Best Actor Oscar with less than 20 minutes of screen time, you still have to give the Lambs their due.
