A seductive story of hero vs. serial killer, Silence is an intellectual modern masterpiece responsible for adding Hannibal Lecter to the canon of iconic killers; a monster as known for his civility as well as his violent and cannibalistic mannerisms. And although the mystery plot mechanics provide genuine tension, and the grisly moments appropriately horrifying, it's really the scenes between Foster and Hopkins that carry the picture. The on screen chemistry, a dichotomy of good and evil, is almost unique given the relationship and quality of portrayal. Silence represents the best of it's genre; 3.5 stars.
