david alcazar’s review published on Letterboxd:
When a literal cannibal treats Jodie Foster with more respect than every other man in the movie.
The ending absurdly good, I was not expecting to be that satisfied. Was I the only one who for a brief second questioned the morality of Hannibal Lector? I felt like the movie was wanting the audience to somewhat sympathize with him at points. I’m assuming this was done to make me feel like the serial killer was getting in my head?
Also, BRAT’S review of this is amazing and perfectly describes how this film comments on the male gaze so check that out if you haven’t!
