    Breaking the Silence: The Making of Hannibal

    ★★★★

    This is never discussed in the documentary, but what we discussed after is that it’s as if the storytelling of The Silence of the Lambs matches the character of Starling, and the storytelling of Hannibal matches the character of Lecter. Lambs is earnest, revelatory, and investigative, much like Special Agent Starling, herself. The character of Hannibal Lecter is so exotic, cerebral, and cultured, and so the exotic and dreamily artful form and function of Hannibal match its title character. This…

    Dear Evan Steamed-Hamsen.

    Yeah, this is pretty bad.

    As with The Woman in the Window, Julianne Moore is the best part. Kaitlyn Dever is also good.

    We still have some classic film trilogies to experience, but of the ones that we’ve seen, this is the most flawlessly written and performed. Spending time with these characters and their journey is wondrous and profound. We feel like we’ve grown, on multiple levels, with actual people.

    Blonde

    ★½

    We’d like to think that Billy Crystal would sing of Andrew Dominik’s Blonde at the Oscars to the melody of “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”. Here’s our draft of the lyrics:

    🎼 A film of Monroe would be quite continental 🎶

    🎶 But Dominik is not our friend 🎶

    🎶 An actual biopic might be essential 🎶

    🎶 But from womb to tomb: all we get is doom and gloom 🎶

    🎶 Pain grows old as we’re left cold 🎶

    🎶 You’ll want to fast forward to the end 🎶

    🎶 A Venice ovation for this abomination?? 🎶

    🎶 Dominik is not our friend 🎶
