The Crime Files Podcast - The Silence of the Lambs (Parts 1, 2, & Minisode)

What would the world be without the relationship between Clarice Starling and Dr. Hannibal Lecter? This movie tugs at heart strings, features a female hero, and introduces the world to the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) of the FBI. The performances from Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster leave one speechless and audiences wondering if they would be able to be in the same room with a serial killer. This timeless classic should be watched again with more regard and earnest to the mastery shown from Hopkins, Foster, Director Jonathan Demme, Cinematographer Tak Fujimoto, Production Designer Kristi Zea, Screenplay artistry by Ted Tally, and the inspiration source created by Thomas Harris.

Episode 1 was recorded LIVE at the ASC (The American Society of Criminology) 75th Annual Conference in San Francisco, CA on November 13th, 2019.
