FINAL REVIEW | SEASON #1 | EPISODE #22 “Silence of the Lambs” (1991) (Dir. Jonathan Demme)

Final Review is kicking off the home stretch of season one with a deep dive into Oscar season. For the next three weeks, we’ll be covering three of our very favorite Best Picture winners.

This week we dive deep into Jonathan Demme’s masterful serial killer thriller, The Silence of the Lambs. Oz and Claudio dive deep into the career and legacy of director Jonathan Demme and leads Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster. The hosts agree the film is truly one of the greats, but they grapple with just how great the film is in beginning a three part dialogue revealing each of their lists of the greatest Best Picture winners of all time.
