#814: The Silence of the Lambs (30th Ann.) / Madness Play-Ins
« on: February 21, 2021, 09:55:58 PM »
Based on Thomas Harris's grisly 1988 bestseller, Jonathan Demme's THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS was, on its February 1991 release, an immediate critical and box office success. It ran for eight months and went on to be nominated for seven Oscars, winning five—for Demme, Hopkins, Foster, screenwriter Ted Tally, and Best Picture. This week on the show, Adam and Josh dig into the technical sophistication - and the humanist touch - that Demme and company bring to the lurid material. Plus, Filmspotting Madness gets underway with the play-in round, and Josh recommends the new BARB AND STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR.
