Silence of the Lambs Pt 3: Quid Pro Quo

18 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

image via FangoriaTeam Experience is revisiting 1991's Best Picture, Silence of the Lambs for its 25th anniversary.

In Pt 1 We met Clarice and Hannibal and heard about the horrifying Buffalo Bill case.

In Pt 2 The FBI's investigation picked up steam with the discovery of another victim and The Death's Head Moth. Finally, we met Buffalo Bill and his latest victim Catherine, now "the girl in the pit." When we left her she was a disembodied voice shouting for help. Why won't you answer me please?

Answers are coming but not without a price. 

Pt 3 by Nathaniel R

00:49:50 A smartly judged sharp cut takes us from the dark abyss of Bill's pit to the brightly lit FBI training facility. It's like blinking from too much sun when you leave a movie theater in the middle of the day. Though Silence of the Lambs deals with gruesomely complex psychology its »

Silence of the Lambs Pt 1: The Grisly Case and a Hustling Rube.

8 February 2016 9:30 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

For the 25th anniversary of the influential horror classic Silence of the Lambs, winner of 5 Oscars for 1991 (Picture, Director, Actress, Actor, and Adapted Screenplay), Team Experience is revisiting the picture, tag-team style all week long.

Cue: opening credits.

Pt 1 by Keiran Scarlett

00:00:01 – Howard Shore’s score always transports me into the mood of this film. It’s at once simple, yet incredibly evocative and iconic. 

00:00:24 – Seeing the Orion logo calls to mind Jodie Foster’s Oscar speech where she thanked Orion Pictures “as it used to be and how it will always be in [her] heart”. Amen, sister.  Seriously, check out the slate of Orion releases. There are some true gems in there.

00:01:31 – The opening montage of young FBI trainee Clarice Starling in the woods near Quantico, Virginia (thanks, super!) I love how Jodie Foster plays Clarice Starling as incredibly enthusiastic, but not naïve. That »

Saoirse Ronan Bonded with Jamie Foster Over the Pressures of Navigating Hollywood as a Former Child Star

7 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Saoirse Ronan's path to success started at a young age: the Brooklyn actress received her first Oscar nomination at only 13. So how did she successfully navigate through early stardom (an area where others often falter)? Her mother's guidance. Ronan, 21, tells New York magazine that having her mom Monica on set when she was working on things like 2007's Atonement added stability to her Hollywood experience.

'Taxi Driver': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Martin Scorsese's Classic

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"You talkin' to me?"

It's the 40th anniversary of "Taxi Driver" (released on February 8, 1976), the movie that gave Robert De Niro his most famous line, put Martin Scorsese on the map, proved that the pre-teen Jodie Foster was an Oscar-worthy thespian, and (most notoriously) was cited by John Hinckley as an inspiration for his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

In honor of the film's anniversary, here are 25 things you need to know about how Travis Bickle came to be.

1. The script, by Paul Schrader (pictured, left), was semi-autobiographical. After a divorce and a break-up with a girlfriend, he wrote the movie while living in his car, feeling suicidal, obsessing about guns and pornography, and having spoken to no one for weeks. As he recalled in 2013, "Taxi Driver" was "an exorcism through art," and it worked.

2. Martin Scorsese saw the script as early as 1972, but didn't yet have the clout to make it, »

Seven of the Greatest Driving Films of all Time

25 January 2016 8:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you are anything like me you couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel of a car. I remember being lucky enough to get my first car before I was even old enough to learn to drive (thanks to my parents). Most of that excitement was based on growing up watching classic driving movies and wanting to experience the thrill of the open road.

Of course, the reality of driving is very different and staying safe and knowing the laws of the road were very important for mine and my friends’ enjoyment. This is the important groundwork needed to make the dream comes true.

If anything the dream of the driving movies spurs you on to do all that important work. So, where should you look for inspiration that will stick with you? Here are some of my greatest driving films of all time:

Can you name all the openly gay Oscar-winning actors?

25 January 2016 4:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Trivia: Name every openly gay actor who won an Academy Award and was out at the time of his/her nomination. To ease the overwhelm of the question, I'll give a hint: The number is under ten.  The answer: With the exception of Linda Hunt, who has been out since the 1980s, and Angelina Jolie, who sometimes referred to her bisexuality in interviews before her win in 2000, there have been zero other Lgbt actors who were out at the time of their win.  Ian McKellen just referred to this statistic in a new interview with Sky News. He says that both times he was nominated for an Oscar, he planned a speech acknowledging his sexual orientation.   "No openly gay man has ever won the Oscar; I wonder if that is prejudice or chance," he said, while pointing out that several straight actors – like Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman – have »

Variety Honoree Kelly Reichardt: Still on the Side of the Outsiders

20 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most indie auteurs comfortably orbit the red hot sun that is big budget, tent pole-driven Hollywood, more than happy to exchange their artistic vision and the eternal quest for financing for a shot at a superhero franchise or monster movie with a built-in global audience and fat payday, should the chance ever come their way.

Kelly Reichardt, who will receive Variety’s 2016 Indie Impact Award at Sundance, is not that kind of filmmaker. Since making her acclaimed 1994 debut “River of Grass,” she’s followed her own singular orbit as a true outlier of indie cinema, and over the course of nearly quarter of a century and nine films has amassed a small but potent body of work – including “Old Joy,” “Wendy and Lucy,” “Meek’s Cutoff” and “Night Moves” – that has cemented her reputation as one of the most distinctive voices in movies today, thanks to her hands-on approach (she »

Growing Up Golden: How Saoirse Ronan Broke the Child Star Jinx with Her Second Oscar Nomination

14 January 2016 7:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Saoirse Ronan is going where few former child starlets have gone before her: back to the Oscars for first time since she was 13. The Irish actress was nominated for Best Actress for her performance in the period drama Brooklyn on Thursday, and she's considered by many critics to be a serious contender in a category that includes the likes of Brie Larson and Cate Blanchett. And while Ronan is only 21, this isn't her first trip to the rodeo. The actress shot to stardom back in 2007 for her turn as Briony Tallis in the film adaptation of Ian McEwan's 2001 novel Atonement. »

Jacob Tremblay is frighteningly good at being a celebrity already. But will he be Oscar nominated?

13 January 2016 11:03 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Recently Scott Feinberg added Jacob Tremblay to his actual predictions for Best Actor nominations. Yes, Best Actor. While Tremblay is obviously the leading man of Room (he co-leads the first half and essentially takes over in the second) he's been campaigned as supporting because he is a kid and that's how kids are campaigned invariably -- remember when they tried to pretend that Keisha Castle Hughes (Whale Rider) was supporting even though her movie had no other leads. Lol. Not so good times.

Tremblay in Best Actor would be a surprise but it maybe isn't a bad call given the seemingly passion-free zone that is the presumed leaders in that particular race. Though I think we'll only see that "promotion" happening if Room is strong enough to nab a Best Picture nomination (I think it is --see the updated Best Picture chart). On the other hand the actors branch, like most organizations, »
