The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs ★★★★½

An essential, frightening, and nail-biting crime thriller with top-notch performances from the scene-stealing Anthony Hopkins as the malicious Hannibal Lecter and the terrific Jodie Foster as Clarisse Starling. Definitely two of the greatest film performances in recent decades. The close-up shots and disturbing images add to the tension and the directing and cinematography is marvelous. The plot is very gripping and the climax had me on the edge of my seat. This movie is simply outstanding and had me engaged until the spectacular final scene. A must-watch for all lovers of crime and cinema in general.
