Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the sixty-fourth Best Picture Winner: “SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.”
“The Silence of the Lambs” follows Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy whose shrewd analyses of serial killers lands her a special assignment: the FBI is investigating a vicious murderer nicknamed Buffalo Bill, who kills young women and then removes the skin from their bodies. F.B.I. Special Agent Jack Crawford tasks Clarice with interviewing Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath, serving life behind bars for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Crawford believes that Lecter may have insight into this case and that Starling may be just the bait to draw him out. Directed by Jonathan Demme, the film stars Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling, Scott Glenn as Jack Crawford, Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, and Ted Levine as Jame Gumb (aka Buffalo Bill).
