The Silence of The Lambs (1991)
Dir- Jonathan Demme
Meanwhile, we soon witness the cruel acts of abuse at the hands of the serial killer known as "Buffalo Bill." He kidnaps a young woman and holds her hostage in preparation for some grotesque sewing project. The step by step process of finding the killer brings Lecter and Stalling closer as a strange fondness develops. The movie then progresses as Stalling is steered to the serial killer's identity but not until she earns from Lecter his trust and respect. The finale is a very tight and a well-played showdown that leaves the viewer at the edge of the seat, but that is not the only showcase. The escape of Lector and his horrible work are shown to the viewers who may have forgotten what kind of monster he is, all in vibrant color and grisly detail. The first horror movie to win a Best Picture Oscar, The Silence of The Lambs would also yield Oscars for Jodie Foster, Sir Anthony Hopkins, and director Jonathan Demme. It would also provide many immortal lines, and memorable scenes as the genius of Hopkins would come to life as one of the terrifying movie monsters of horror cinema.
