For Silence of the Lambs, we talk about the film’s unique framing and cinematography, how Demme humanizes his characters, why Silence succeeds where others Hannibal Lecter movies fail, and more. We then move on to a broader discussion of Demme’s filmography, how he always fell outside the zeitgeist despite his talent, the brilliance of Philadelphia, the difficulty in finding his work these days, and more.
