The Silence of the Lambs

Hannibal Lecter The ultimate villain of of the PDFEPUB #187 modern fiction Read the five million copy bestseller th. WhyMany years from now historians will look back on this story and wonder why it was so important And believe me my friends important it was Today most thrillers and police procedurals gets measured against itFor this review I will refer to TSOTL as the story because I m going to talk about the book movie facts fiction and some of my own opinionsTSOTL was the second Dr Hannibal Lector story It was also the second movie adaptation wait just a damn moment you might be saying to me Red Dragon was the first book but it was made after the TSOTL movie was so successfulCorrectHowever there was an attempt at a screen adaptation of Red Dragon a few years before TSOTL called MANHUNTER It was directed by Michael Mann To the best of my knowledge it was a flop at the box officeThere are a few things TSOTL had going for it that counted in its favor By all means Thomas Harris is a brilliant writer if you ve read any of the books you will know this But most movie freaks and geeks will agree with me that the story is probably one of the best adaptations from book to screen everThen you look at the cast Jody Foster managed to play a vulnerable yet strong female IMPORTANT lead You know she is intelligent yet she knows that she has no chance against the superior intellect of Dr Hannibal Lector In comes Anthony Hopkins whose portrayal of the psychopathic genius is so convincing it catapults him to one of the biggest super villains of all time yet he is so charming that the audience can t help but like himAnd of course Buffalo Bill is played by Ted Levine who is utterly convincing even if you ve seen him as the cop in MONKWith a strong cast and story this movie became an unlikely contender at the Academy Awards And they won a fewRight lets take a step back to the research phase of this storyThomas Harris in the early 80 s were doing research and was fortunate enough to get involved with criminal profiling which at that time had been an unproven and highly speculative science It was during the time when they were on the trail of one Ted Bundy If you know a bit about this famous serial killer you will probably know that he used to fake injuries by wearing a cast and asking victims for their help Do you remember how Buffalo Bill got that girl in the back of the van And while Bundy was incarcerated on death row he was willing to help the police do a profile on another serial killer of the time The Green River Killer I believe Bundy told them not to remove a body when they discover it because the killer will go back to his treasure something that was later confirmed to have happened Remember that agent Sterling asked Dr Lector for his help And then there was the killer Ed Gein many decades before who robbed graves and ultimately killed people to make himself a female skin which was apparently hard to sow without tearing Need I explain this one The fact of the matter is while some things may have seemed preposterous to us in the early eighties like they could only happen in the movies there were some truly messed up people out there who were doing some truly messed up things wow it s been a while since I ve kept a sentence PG like thatI will accept your applause humblyAlso there was and unfortunately still are some stereo types about women in the FBI Harris took the opportunity to make a statement maybe very subtly but still very important about power vs emotion At no time does this story feel like a Hollywood blockbuster where the star is cocky and always has a way out of a sticky situation where it s all guns and fire and explosions etc No this story was meant to cut close to home to show the possibilities for we are all vulnerable in this world Agent Clarice is scared she fears for her life she doesn t know if she will survive but she fights the big bad Goliath killer And she winsThis story is also important from a psychological point of view Whatever your feelings about profiling may be they have discovered so much and found impossible connections through their research and we will never know how many lives it has saved It s a kind of Paying it forward thing By doing what they do they prevent things that may have been inevitable in a different worldI once saw something I can t remember exactly where about some research they were doing on inmates They took brain scans of a number of them and noted that those who were certified as psychopathic had an underdeveloped area in a certain part of their brains If I can remember correctly it had something to do with the mother producing too much serotonin during pregnancy or some such scientific thingHow is this helpful you may askWell this is my personal opinion so if it offends you stop readingCasey AnthonyIs she a psychopath who got away with murderYes when I look at the facts of the case and the things her attorney s did to get her free I m sickened to think the jurors couldn t believe a mother would do that to her child Nobody LIKES to believe it but I wish I could have seen a brain scan of her compared to those other psychopaths I wish there was a psychologist who could have explained it to themBut enough about thatThis book is was and always will be important because it brought certain realities home to the world we find ourselves inIf you haven t read it but managed to get through this long review what s the matter with youBut I am not

At scared the world silent The Silence of the Lambs A young FBI trainee An evil genius locked away for unspeakable. CONTENT ANNOUNCEMENT Out of respect for Thomas Harris s superb novel I have decided that no pictures of ANTHONY HOPKINS will appear in this review Thank you for your understanding40 to 45 stars Another one of those terrific situations where I saw the movie first and loved it and then eventually decided to read the book and loved it too Score Now assuming that most people not suffering from the after effects of severe head trauma know the basic plot concerning FBI trainee HelloClariiiiiice Starling while trying to kibosh a Psychotic Vera Wang wannabe named Buffalo Bill starts an unconventional relationship with extreme culinary expert Dr Hannibalicious Lecter I thought I would give you my take on the whole movie winsbook wins debate Please note that I am going to feel completely free to drop spoilers without warning from here on out sorecognize MOVIE GLORY 1 First I thought the movie s treatment of Starling s time on the Sheep and Horse farm was much better probably in large part due to Jodie Foster really nailing the angst factor as she describes trying to save a spring lamb from slaughter in the book it was horses being slaughtered that she was tripping about Here the movie wins and I can still close my eyes and here FosterStarling saying the lambs were screaming and it was cold so cold She made that scene her chew toy and it is a wonderful example of taking and condensing it into a powerful less 2 The End of the movie Lecter stalking Dr Chilton and ending his phone conversation with Starling by saying I m going to have an old friend for dinner YUM One of my favorite linesideas from the movie and I was very bitter that it did not have an analog in the book The Booest of Hoos on that AND SURPRISINGLYthat is it for the movies clear superiority Now don t get me wrong I loved the movie and think they did much EXCEPTIONALLY well However I was shocked in reading the book that most the best parts in the movie including Lecter which shocked me were handled eually effectively in the book Thus where I think it was a tie or too close to call I have decided not to put it in one camp or another With that saidon to the book BOOK DOMINANCE 1 Need to start with Lector and this is a surprise because Sir Anthony made this role his like few people on movie history However I am not talking about what was in both the movie and the book as I think it is a push to a slight edge to Mr Hopkins No I am talking about the one AMAZING insight the book provides to the character Namely Lecter s motivation is about amusing himself This single thread running through the book makes Lecter a far darker far sinister character which also explains why hollywood downplayed it to land Hopkins in the role Walking away from the book the reader has a much better sense of Lector as a conscience lacking entity of pure evil than we get from the movie Kudos to Mr Harris on that point 2 As good as Scott Glenn is in the movie his character found way too much time on the editing room floor and the book truly develops well His scene with the head of John Hopkins university is one that truly should have found a way on screen as I thought it was perfect3 James Gumb aka Buffalo Bill As wonderfully icky as Ted Levine is in the movie he comes across as just a nutso on screen with the naked tuck dance an the lotion commercials Meanwhile in lit land Gumby is shown to be soSAVAGE and calculating that all of the nutso stuff takes on a far sinister aspect I was deeply disturbed by the depiction of Gumb s craft skills and the movie never hammered that home enough PUTTING IT IN THE NUT S SHELL S Overall I was deeply impressed with both the movie and book but the book really gets the gold star for being able to work with my love of the movie and still blow me away In closing if you have only seen the movie you should read the book and if you have only read the book you should see the movie as it is deeply respectful of the source material HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDPS I listened to the audio version read by Frank Muller and he was his usual perfection PPS I was fairly insulted that the movie makers felt the need to change Amarone to Chianti in the famous fava beans scene presumably because they didn t think the audience would get it OUCH

    Call me a freak but I have a bit of a crush on Hannibal Lecter He may be the scariest fuck out there certainly scarier than the supposed monster of the book Buffalo Bill but he just oozes style and knowledge In fact he has so much style and knowledge that he doesn't come off as a ridiculous prick when he says things like 'A census

    45★Loved the movie Loved the book The Kindle edition is slightly tainted with numbers sporadically interweaved into the text which I assume judging by the percentage I was currently on when the numbers appeared is the actual page number No biggie Just a bit jarring as my edition of the novel had location numbering at the bottom Don't know why they do that but whatever I'm impressed by how close the movie is to the source mater

    I have a love hate sort of relationship with this book At times I marvel at the intelligence and wittiness of Hannibal and other times I can't get my mind past through the things like trans phobia body shaming sta

    So I read these books out of order I started with Hannibal which gives better background and fleshes out the character of Lecter much than the mess that was Hannibal Rising then read Red Dragon and finally this one Can I just say that I love Clarice Starling? I just have such a deep respect and admiration for her also Jodie why didn't you come back for the seuel?? I mean Moore was great but I don't like a break
