October Movie: Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Needed a bit of palette cleanser.  Silence of the Lambs is a fantastic movie. It was one of those movies that stuck with me for years. I remember running out to buy the book soon after and then I went an read everything by John Douglas, the FBI profiler the was one of the influences on the book.
Without Silence we would not have had the TV shows "The Profiler" or "The Blacklist" and to some extent "The X-Files".

The great thing about re-watching this one is once again seeing how good of an actress Jodie Foster really is. Not to mention how great Anthony Hopkins is.  Plus you have to love a movie that gives Roger Corman a cameo role.

Tally: Watched 6,  New 5

What are you watching?

I watch The Silence of the Lambs every year, often in October. I find something different to appreciate every year.

I'm not watching anything right now *grin* but the last time I had a date with the TV I enjoyed several episodes of Dexter.
