Long Story Short:
In order to create a profile of a vicious serial killer Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), a young and inexperienced F.B.I. cadet, has to rely on the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter – a psychopath who used to be a respected psychiatrist. But his help comes with a price.
This movie truly is a unique experience and a great example for perfection. Both Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins received the Oscar for their performances which was more than justified. The atmosphere is gripping and scary throughout the entire movie and won’t let you go until the very end. The movie is beautifully shot and the editing is brilliant, everything works well together. The writing, the dialogues, the music, everything is in sync and creates a perfect mixture of Psycho- Drama and Horror- Thriller. I was 9 when I saw this for the first time and I had nightmares. This movie is 22 years ago and still gives me chills whenever I watch it. A perfect choice not only for Halloween.
