Criterion The Silence of the Lambs (1991)


Quote:
In this chilling adaptation of the best-selling novel by Thomas Harris, the astonishingly versatile director Jonathan Demme crafted a taut psychological thriller about an American obsession: serial murder. As Clarice Starling, an FBI trainee who enlists the help of the infamous Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter to gain insight into the mind of another killer, Jodie Foster subverts classic gender dynamics and gives one of the most memorable performances of her career. As her foil, Anthony Hopkins is the archetypical antihero—cultured, quick-witted, and savagely murderous—delivering a harrowing portrait of humanity gone terribly wrong. A gripping police procedural and a disquieting immersion into a twisted psyche, The Silence of the Lambs swept the Academy Awards (best picture, best director, best screenplay, best actress, best actor) and remains a cultural touchstone.

BD has very mediocre transfer so a new remaster had to happen.

Should be there. When Criterion added this back to Filmstruck, they also provided the commentary track. They produced it, so it would be odd if it were omitted.

Just as expected. Wonderful news! The current release needed an update badly.

Plus other OOP titles? Those Hitchcock films will be mine, plus I can finally grab Spinal Tap.

I remember being pretty excited about that Criterion laserdisc. I think it was their first THX disc, and with the sound mastered from the 35mm Dolby Spectral Recording stereo magnetic master. It sounded fantastic.

The 4K version has been up on VUDU for a few months. Been tempted to watch it, or just wait until the 4K UHD hits.

Seriously, holy shit...Lambs AND Spinal Tap both returning to the Criterion Collection next year? My god. Never thought I'd ever be seeing those spine numbers again, much less on my BD shelf. Just having that amazing Silence commentary-track back in print again is going to be worth the entire purchase price all by itself. Incredibly excited right now.
