I'm not a big fan. I found it interesting and worth the time it took to watch, but there are other films that kind of fall into the same genre that I find much more proficient. I'm baffled why it is THIS one that gets heralded as one of the best of the 90s. It's got some good performances (albeit somewhat over-the-top), but I feel it's uneven and seriously overrated.

I thought it was a very good film, but highly overrated.

I think it's one of the best thrillers ever made, I've watched it many times and never get tired of it. It's the great character that make it work for me more than any of the gore or suspense, however.

I agree with Sierra. I think it is one of the best psychalogical thrillers ever. The acting was suberb and Hopkins was untouchable. Hannibal Lechter will always be thought about as one of the best villians ever

Just adding a little something, Anthony Hopkins was absolutely brillaint in this one.He easily deserved the Oscar he got for Best Actor.Same for Jodie Foster.
