Over twenty-five years on, Jonathan Demme’s “The Silence of the Lambs” remains one of the greatest psychological thriller films ever made.
Based on the Thomas Harris novel, the film starred Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster in iconic performances as rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling and the crafty imprisoned cannibal psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter in a mindgame between the two as she hunts for the serial killer Buffalo Bill.
Now, the classic film is being re-released in U.K. cinemas from next week courtesy of Park Circus and British Film Institute. Boasting a 4K restoration, the film looks as good as it ever has. Tickets within the UK can be snagged from the BFI’s official site which also shows dates and locations for the various screenings.
