Film information

Based on: The novel by Thomas Harris ('Silence of the Lambs')

Story: Triple bill of thrillers from the 1990s. In 'Silence of the Lambs' (1990), FBI Officer Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) is investigating a bizarre and gruesome series of murders carried out by 'Buffalo Bill'. The investigation steps up a gear when the mayor's daughter is abducted. Starling turns for help to incarcerated psychopath Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), who has a penchant for chewing people's faces off. Given special privileges in exchange for information, Lecter escapes, leaving two twisted killers on the loose. The film won Oscars for Best Film, Best Director (Jonathan Demme), Best Actor (Anthony Hopkins), Best Actress (Jodie Foster) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Ted Tally). In 'The Usual Suspects' (1995), a burnt-out ship has been discovered in a Los Angeles harbour with 27 dead bodies on board. US customs agent Dave Kujal (Chazz Palminteri) is working on the case, and thinks his best chance is to interrogate the one survivor of the shipboard massacre, conman 'Verbal' Kint (Kevin Spacey). Sitting in an office at police headquarters, Kint begins to tell his story, and the more he says, the more Kujal becomes convinced that mythical master criminal Keyser Soze is the man behind it all. In 'Fargo' (1995), an offbeat, grisly black comedy from the Coen brothers, Minnesota car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), deeply in debt, arranges for the kidnapping of his wife in order to obtain a sizeable ransom from her father to pay off both his henchmen and his debts. However, all does not go according to plan. Frances McDormand won the Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of the heavily pregnant Police Officer assigned to the case, while the film also won Best Original Screenplay.
