One of the most talked about films of 1991, this enthralling detective-horror story follows the tale of FBI trainee Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), as she attempts to track a serial killer. She seeks help from another psychotic killer, Dr. Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, in a stunning performance). She enters into a psychotic "head-shrinking" session with the good doctor, hoping to find out who the killer is, while at the same time confronting her own hidden fear.

Stellar performances by the two leads, wonderful direction, a script with plenty of plot twists and a nerve-jangling pace that keeps up through the entire film, make this a true masterpiece. Hopkins' role will go down as one of the best screen villains ever to grace us with his menacing presence. Foster holds her own quite well, playing a woman who is smart, quick-witted and courageous. She makes what could have been the typical FBI robot stereotype into something truly magnificent. The thing I loved most was the love story between Hopkins and Foster. Love story? Yes, if you pay attention, you will find that they are attracted in some way to each other. It's a bizarre love story, but a love story none the less. A must-see movie!
