eerily creepy, stunningly vivid, and masterful, Silence of the Lambs shows what a great classic is really made of. It gives a in- depth view on the lives of real- FBI agents, yet retains that cinematic quality. Jodi Foster leads an all- star cast as the brave and traumatized Clarice Starling, balancing her character's strengths and weaknesses, resulting in movie perfection. And of course, how can we forget Anthony Hopkins as the brilliant yet nuts psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter? he speaks each word majestically, as smooth as velvet yet as sharp as a newly- sharpened knife, plunging into your spines. Scott Glenn as Jack Crawford complements the two lead stars' performances with his scene stealing chops and witty lines. Up next is Ted Levine as the psychotic murderer Buffalo Bill, squeezing every horror factor in the scene, following the footsteps of Mike Myers and Jason, forever in the viewers' minds.
Worthy of following the novel, Silence of the Lambs is a gripping story of wit, cleverness, and guts that will surely take place as one of the great ones.
