The Silence of the Lambs mixes intensity and emo tion with a unique feeding on two Oscarcaliber performances and deft direction by Jonathan The film certain to be one of the best of the year is a feminist slasher which has got to be a The anonymous American Girl victim is given some brains and composure rather than just while the heroine is one of the more competent and complex women youll see on Jodie Foster plays FBI trainee Clarice who is given a chance by bureau higherups to interview a psychopathic killer in hopes of obtaining information on an atlarge serial killer known as Buffalo The incarcerated killer is Hannibal Lecter Anthony a psychiatrist with a penchant for eating his Lecter treated Buffalo Bill briefly during his inchoate stages of and has some insight into his the only problem is that he nor mally doesnt like to share Both Foster and Hopkins are phenomenal in their respective with the developmental scenes between them ranking among the movies most As Foster portrays a woman excelling in maledominated profession of law The level of her work doesnt make her any more readily perhaps even less she stands her ground at all times and even for ces the issue of being treated equally and with Attractive but not at all Clarice is a rare her oine who does the ground work herself and does not require male assistance to get out of a The character of Lecter is drawn in by all of these aspects of Clarices and even more so by his accurate perception of the ghosts of her The film reverses all of the conventions of its genre including in the things missing from the film are an underlying romantic theme between Clarice and her a stalking of Clarice by Lecter who is other wise an equal opportunity flesh eater and an actual slasher Foster is an ideal choice to play more for her acting skills than her history as a target of an American Her Hinckley exorcise is called Five Cor and along with this is among the standout perfor mances of her distinguished Just as fortunate for the movie is the choice of Demme as director a more heavyhanded filmmaker such as Alan Parker or Oliver Stone would have ruined this by hammering down the storys because of the subtlety exhibited by the often fullforce intensity is broken up by the films restraint and The expository scenes are anything but forced clippings and pictures on the FBI wall show immediate insight to the Buffalo Bill while the introductions to Clarice a grueling run through an obstacle course and Lecter a perfectly calm and upright stance in the dungeon of an insane asylum have similar The movie should help Demme as much as he aug mented One of the countrys most consistent and innovative his movies even the wonder ful Married to the Mob and classic Melvin and Howard have always lacked usually in the its a major compliment to say this is his best Completely enthralling and usually for intensity The Silence of the Lambs is in company with the relatively recent mindblowers Dead Ringers and Full Thats an unequivocal recommenda tion at least for anyone who can sit through Grade The Spring Concert of featuring the Opening Door Dance Theatre at will be presented this Spring
