The Silence of the Lambs 02/17/18

The Criterion Collection

Talk about staying power — Jonathan Demme’s riveting, ultimately humanistic horror thriller raked in a full house of Oscars and is still scaring new viewers. Even those that chose to avoid it know what it’s all about. My review bows to the film’s superiority and remarks on some of its finer points of cinematic splendor. Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster can do no wrong; Scott Glenn, Ted Levine and Diane Baker provide formidable support. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
