...förblir en av de bästa filmerna i modern tid. Med eller utan en fin chanti till.
Foster's journey makes the film a terrifying fable, and far more than the sum of its overflowing case file.
...its sheer confidence in tackling Harris complex characterisation head-on, and its ability to scare the shit out of its audience without ever once resorting to amateur hour frightwigs and hands-over-the-eyes. Fingerlickin' good.
Not that one should need a special reason to watch a blockbuster horror-thriller as breath-quickening and elegantly crafted as this one.
We are frightened both because of the film's clever manipulation of story and image, and for better reasons--we like Clarice, identify with her and fear for her. Just like Lecter.
