  • Though the film's subject matter is grisly, the electricity between Foster and Hopkins during their prison tête-à-têtes could power every maximum-security prison in this country. show more

  • The interplay between Starling and Lector as they share an indefinable, dark understanding gives the film its unforgettable and unsettling power. [14 February 1991, Daily Notebook, p.E1] show more

    The greatest thriller/crime-drama/mystery/suspense movie ever! One of the greatest movies ever made. A classic for all generations to behold. Anthony Hopkins has one of the greatest screen performances ever! Fantastically lead by Jodie Foster and amazingly supported by Ted Levine. Smart, creepy, and terrific.
