The Silence of the Lambs Review

Everyone knows about, and most people have surely seen, The Silence of the Lambs. It's one of only 3 movies that have ever won ALL 5 awards at the Academy Awards. Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, and of course Best Picture. It was a huge hit. Everyone knows about it.

Everyone knows about it because it's an incredible movie, for both fans of horror and otherwise. Everything from the techniques used to build suspense and tension to the casting, the score and cinematography were all fantastic. It was all 5 Academy Awards because it's hands down one of the best movies made.

Everyone knows about Hannibal the Cannibal's love of chianti and fava beans.

Everyone knows about Buffalo Bill's iconic dance.

And everyone knows that it puts the lotion in the basket.

We've all seen these. And I doubt there's any new insight I can conjure up about this movie that you haven't heard before. So instead, how about I just share some fun stuff about The Silence of the Lambs that maybe you (hopefully) haven't seen before...
