Maybe it’s young Anthony Hopkins? Maybe it’s the exceptional sound design? Maybe it’s just that his style hadn’t fully blossomed? Whatever the case, it’s possible that we’ve found a David Lynch movie that’s un-Lynchian enough for even Jim to love!
This commissioned podcast is brought to you by the generosity of one Aaron Spaulding, thank you! Aaron wanted us to check out the 1991 mystery/thriller, “The Silence of the Lambs”, directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster. It’s no surprise that we’re mesmerized by Hopkin’s performance of the chilling yet suave and charming Dr. Hannibal Lecter, and found the film offered some smart commentary on a female breaking into a male dominated space as well. What might be to some surprise is Jim and A.Ron’s relative unfamiliarity with the material, which led to some confusion in places. Hope you enjoy the podcast, I hear it pairs well with a nice Chianti.
