The Maltese Falcon isn’t the only classic movie having a significant anniversary this year.
Silence of the Lambs was released 25 years ago, on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 1991.
The Film Experience, one of those sites I check almost every day, has a fascinating scene-by-scene analysis of the movie, with five writers each commenting on a different section of the film. It’s v perceptive and v funny.
That’s all the excuse I need to post this extremely NSFW video, in which Legos perform one of the key scenes from Jon and Al Kaplan’s Silence! The Musical, which ran for 500 performances in New York. Yes, it’s the musical version of Silence of the Lambs, and it’s hilarious.
