Imo and James find oooodles of time to discuss the next course in the ‘Hannibal’ franchise: ‘Red Dragon’ (2002).

Do they find this prequel as bittersweet as ‘Silence’ or a sour mouthful as ‘Hannibal’? Was it worth one critic mastering their fear to continue with this cornucopia of serial killers, highfalutin cultural allusions and dubious innuendos?

They discover:

…how the representations of ‘evil’ has progressed between the movies thus far…

…whether Dr. Lecter is dark hero or demonic accomplice in Hopkin’s last outing as the campy-but-cannibalistic therapist…

…and when Ralph Fiennes channels his toxic Chad but struggles to break down one of the flimsiest doors in Hollywood (here’s…Francis! Or not…)

This is the third 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’ (2002) and ‘Hannibal Rising’ (2007).

We’ve had quite a few of these little chin-wags: catch up on Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
