VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Silence of the Lambs

Some say there is no Silence of the Lambs without Anthony Hopkins's performance, but I would argue there is no Silence of the Lambs without Jodie Foster. More than a conversation between Clarice and Hannibal, it is a dialogue between Foster and John W. Hinckley, a sane person and a psychopath both linked together. It's a shame then that such conversations are left on the side for another dark and dirty thriller.
