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?
…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.
