Frank Didymus (Queer Intersectional Healthcare Activist) and Andrew Johnstone (sometimes podcaster occasional Digital Humanist) return to Flixwatcher to review Frank’s choice The Silence of the Lambs. The Silence of the Lambs is the 1991 adaptation of the Thomas Harris novel of the same name starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins (both Oscar-winning performances) and directed by Jonathan Demme. Clarice Starling (Foster), trainee FBI agent is brought in to help track down a serial killer “Buffalo Bill” by enlisting the help of the brilliant psychiatrist but cannibalistic serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lector (Hopkins). It won the ‘big five’ at the Academy Awards - Actor, Actress, Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay - only the third film to ever do so. Every one it deserves, Demme direction is both grotesque and compulsive, slow-burning and unbelievably tense, extremely dark but also occasionally funny.


[supsystic-tables id=150] Unsurprisingly The Silence of the Lambs scores highly across pretty much all of the Flixwatcher categories - overall it scores an impressive 4.68 - making it the current 4th top-ranked Flixwatcher film.
