CGiii Comment

Nothing more can be said about this...

Unfortunately, future filmmakers of this genre managed to ignore all of its genius - in suspense, intelligence, performance and sheer bravery of an exceptional script.

An adult film - towering high above its contemporaries.

It deserved its 5 Oscars - a true modern classic.


The(ir) Blurb...

Young FBI agent Clarice Starling is assigned to help find a missing woman to save her from a psychopathic serial killer who skins his victims. Clarice attempts to gain a better insight into the twisted mind of the killer by talking to another psychopath Hannibal Lecter, who used to be a respected psychiatrist. FBI agent Jack Crawford believes that Lecter, who is also a very powerful and clever mind manipulator, has the answers to their questions and can help locate the killer. However, Clarice must first gain Lecter's confidence before the inmate will give away any information.
