This used to be my favorite of the series but it really drags. The acting is fine for the most part but there were some cringe moments. The film struggles to be interesting and earn it’s runtime.
One of the best mystery/thriller films I’ve ever seen. It had some incredibly effective horror elements but it doesn’t really fit that genre. That being said, Clarice is a really stupid character and makes hilariously bad decisions. Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are both absurdly good, their performances are so nuanced and subtle, I loved it.
