Every month, the CINEMA Movie Club offers a chance for all film buffs to finally watch those beloved classic block busters on the big screen again - (naturally) in their original English version. Enjoy!
Director Jonathan Demme's 1992 multiple Oscar-winning thriller features the famous character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins), an incarcerated, brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer who is believed to have insight into a current murder case. Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a young FBI trainee, who must confide in Lecter and let him dig into her psyche, in order to in exchange receive valuable advice that leads to the serial killer at large. The only horror film ever to be considered worthy of the Academy's top prize, and to even go on and win the Big Five Oscars (Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Adapted Screenplay), this is truly a well-made, insidious and riveting non-stop thriller of nerve-racking intensity - a bona fide classic of its kind.
