#013: The Silence Of The Lambs

criterion13JONATHAN DEMME

1991

When you truly love movies, the ones that capture your imagination are the ones that superbly well made regardless of their subject matter, but not everyone feels that way.  Jonathan Demme’s masterpiece is a movie that some members of my family have seen as an example of my degeneracy and have said so, but as far as I’m concerned, my constantly watching this film is simply indicative of my own fantastic taste.  For my sister, though, seeing this movie was a night of terror that she refused to ever repeat, while also never criticizing me for having a higher tolerance for it.  On this episode, I go into family drama including having my sister tell me her experience with the film.
