The film manages to build suspense extremely well, even after watching it multiple times. It easily keeps your attention, and you are almost always on the edge of your seat. The mystery elements of the film were extremely smart and mind-bending. The character of Clarice is well-developed and likable, and the character of Hannibal Lecter is brilliantly written, with funny, creepy, and relatable moments getting inside your mind, just as the character is supposed to.
The actors do a perfect job of capturing the characters. Jodie Foster is phenomenal as Clarice, fittingly strong and fierce. Anthony Hopkins, who is always great, is perfectly cast as Hannibal Lecter, extremely creepy in the role. The cinematography and score of the film are also great.
So overall, "The Silence of the Lambs" is an interesting, well-made horror/thriller. Like I said earlier, it is a must see for all people at some point in their lives and is probably one of my favorite thrillers of all time.
