The Hannibal Lecter Universe
On Valentine’s Day, “The Silence of the Lambs” celebrated 30 years of haunting imaginations and changing serial-killer cinema forever. On this week’s Be Reel, Noah and Chance appreciate the many inimitable qualities of Jonathan Demme’s 1991 classic before exploring the full menu of Thomas Harris adaptations: “Manhunter” (1986), “Hannibal” (2001), and “Hannibal Rising” (2007).

Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
