Excellent Making Of....
13 February 2002 | by theparagonofvirtueSee all my reviews

Defenitly the highlight of the region 2 Silence of the Lambs DVD. 10 years on and we go back to see how he greatest thriller of all time was made and its probably one of the most insightful documentaries on DVD. Most DVDs have 20 minutes featurettes but this hour long look at how and why actors were cast, how props were conceived (Lecter's mask) and just how in depth the research was to make this film as realistic as possible. The only problem is it was made after Jodie Foster and Jonathan Demme decided to pass on Hannibal so they are noticeably absent in this feature. Jodie appears once in some news reel footage and you wish she was there to reflect on the role that made her a household name. The spooky thing is they talk about Demme as if he was dead! Just the way he is talked about in the past tense and how images of him are presented. I had to check IMDB just to make sure! A great documentary that really lets you inside the mind of those who made silence of the lambs.
