This my mothers favourite film.She loves all them psychological thriller type films.During the first 15 minutes i was a little sceptical,i thought Fosters acting was a bit off.But as the film progresses i realised that that was all part of the character of Starling.A great film,it spawned 2 sequels and a prequel i think.For anyone who hasn’t heard of it,it’s about a locked up serial killer who was once a psychiatrist,is he still one?, who is asked to help out with a current serial killer who’s doing the rounds.He seems to know his shit and actually met the killer on the loose once.Foster plays a cadet at the FBI academy who gets tasked with interviewing him in the hope that a little eye candy will help him relinquish some info.Hey presto it does.There’s a few famous faces here who went on to pursue parts in series like Barney the asylum guard who was in The Wire and buffalo bill himself was in Monk.I think.Some good camera work.The close-ups and cuts betweens people as they talk is super effective.I don’t think i had any qualms with the film,i did notice in the last scene where Starling is graduating that they have a huge cake with the FBI emblem on it and the woman cuts a piece that looks like about a 20th and there seems to be about 50+ people at the do.No cake for most of them it seems.
