A very stunning thriller that brought the famous Hannibal Lector to life. This movie is definitely intense and mentally disturbing. In lots of scenes, Hannibal talks to Clarice Starling, and brings out the nightmares from her memories. The whole concept of a transgendered killer hunting down women, cutting off their skin, and wearing it to feel like a woman is highly disturbing. There are crime scene photos of skinned victims, and the most gruesome violence is done off screen. There is a scene where a naked man claims he had cut his finger, when Clarice looks at him, he shouts "Look at the blood"! And throws his semen on to her face. There is another scene where the killer, Buffalo Bill, is putting makeup on. In the scene there are close ups of him putting eye liner on, him fondling his nipple piercing, and putting on lipstick (he also has the scalp of a woman on his head). There is a close up of him asking himself "would you **** me"? He then says "I'd **** me, I'd **** me so hard. This dialogue might disturb a lot of viewers. He then dancers in front of a camera, we see the camera's perspective. He dances with a blanket wrapped around his back, and one hand which is wrapped up in the blanket, covering his genitals. He then goes close up to the camera, tucks his genitals in between his legs ( we don't see his junk, because he is so close to the camera), then he dances away and we see his pubes, he had obviously done this to make it look like he had a vagina. This whole is scene is very graphic and messes with your mind, it has also become a popular scene in film history. There is occasional drinking, usually in social parties. To wrap this review up, I'm just going to say: WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK! And if you watch it, I hope you enjoy the experience of one of the worlds best movies ever made.
