the silence of the lambs by Anthea Slade

Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster delivered knock out Oscar winning performances in the intelligent spellbinding thriller the silence of the lambs, a terrifying masterpiece that won five Academy Awards including Best Director and Best Picture.

A pyschopath known as Buffalo Bill is kidnappping and murdering young women across the midwest of USA. In order to understand Buffalo Bills psychology the FBI sends Clarice Starling (Foster) to inteview a demented prisoner who may be able to provide psychological insight and clues into the murderers actions. The prisoner is psychiatrist Dr Hannibal Lector (Hopkins), a brilliant, murderous cannibal who will only help Starling if she will feed his own morbid curiosity with details of her own complicated life. This twisted relationship forces Starling to confront her own psychological demons and also leads her to face this evil killer so powerful that she may not have the strength to stop him. For as horrific as it is their relationship possesses a strange intimacy bordering on the erotic.

I first saw the silence of the lambs in Sacramento, when I was living US in 1990. I remember being mesmerised, riveted to my seat and seduced by one of the best thrillers I had ever seen. And yes I was scared. Even today this movie is still powerful and remains one of my favourite movies of all times Beside honestly, how can you beat the pairing of these two extraordinary actors Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
