In this next episode, Imo and James carve up the eponymously-titled sequel to ‘The Silence of the Lambs’: ‘Hannibal’ (2001)
For one of our critics this is old meat to chew over, while for the other it’s their first bite into the rest of the ‘Hannibal’ franchise.
…how this uneven follow-up has the two friends getting a bit tired of the lambs, especially as far as the franchise’s lead characters are concerned…
…when the film’s overt presentation of ‘evil’ leaves a sour taste due to its overt symbolism and silliness…
…and why the subtle hints of queerness are highly questionable representation.
This is the second of a four part series that will explore the characters and depiction of ‘evil’ in the Hannibal ‘Quadrilogy’: ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ (1991), ‘Hannibal’ (2001), ‘Red Dragon’ (2003) and ‘Hannibal Rising’ (2007).
