MOVIE OF THE WEEK: The Silence of the Lambs

Wow, they really don’t make thrillers like this anymore! After watching “Seven” and now “Silence of the Lambs” I realize I really need to start watching some of these older films. What a tour de force! The editing was perfect, as every scene was important. The screenplay was exceptional and was well laid out. The acting was superb – Anthony Hopkins is the ultimate creeper and Jodie Foster’s performance was vital in creating the suspense-filled atmosphere. The music was good as well, but the acting and script was such that music wasn’t even required to set the tone of the film. Simply amazing! It’s easy to understand why it swept the Oscars (Best Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay and of course, Best Picture). One of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
