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.

They discover:

…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).
