CLASSIC OF THE MOMENT

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
25th Anniversary Retrospective

"Thank you all for such a wonderful series - it's been a daily pleasure this week to check into the next installment. With the film structured the way it is, you all got to write about a bit of Buffalo Bill, a bit of Clarice and Lecter, and a bit of Demme's ultra-electric casting and shot selection!"- Edward L

"Part of me is really amused by the idea of Streep getting recognition for playing the part of someone so notoriously untalented and completely unaware of it to boot."- Nick T

 "all Meryl Streep needs to do is tell the studio "Yes, I'm up for a campaign" and she'll get another nomination. It's just that easy."- Yavor
