The Silence of the Lambs by Cynthia J. Miller, Institute for Liberal Arts, Emerson College Summary

The Silence of the Lambs: Critical Essays on a Cannibal, Clarice, and a Nice Chianti brings together scholarship from across the disciplines to examine not only themes commonly associated with the film—such as gender, cannibalism, and psychopathy—but also unexpected themes such as the film’s use of humor, language, and forensic science, as well as issues of Orientalism and classism. Each of the essays offers a new perspective on a film that both audiences and scholars relate to as a cultural touchstone. In addition, chapters on critical historiography, the film’s role in popular culture, genre evolution, as well as its critical reception, offer contemporary readers a “big picture” perspective on the film.

Silence of the Lambs by Frank Stone Summary

Gary Heidnik was a serial killer whose crimes would become the inspiration for the "Buffalo Bill" character in the movie "Silence of the Lambs." He built and designed a torture chamber in the basement of his home in North Philadelphia where he lured both prostitutes and mentally challenged adults, holding them captive for sex. Heidnik constructed this house of horrors over the course of several months. He dug up the basement, bought chains to hold down the women and bars for the windows. Experts are split on the verdict of whether Gary was pure evil or simply insane. What is certain, was that his goal was to have his own harem. A place where he could have his own "farm" of women who would give birth to his children. He realized that no woman would undergo this voluntarily so he decided to begin abducting them, one by one, in the winter of 1986...

The Silence of the Lambs by Barry Forshaw Summary

The 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs, based on Thomas Harris’s bestseller, was a game-changer in the fields of both horror and crime cinema. FBI trainee Clarice Starling was a new kind of heroine, vulnerable, intuitive, and in a deeply unhealthy relationship with her monstrous helper/opponent, the serial killer Hannibal Lecter. Jonathan Demme’s film skillfully appropriated the tropes of police procedural, gothic melodrama and contemporary horror and produced something entirely new. The resulting film was both critically acclaimed and massively popular, and went on to have an enormous influence on 1990s genre cinema. Crime and horror authority Barry Forshaw closely examines the factors that contributed to the film’s impact, including the revelatory performances of Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in the lead roles.

Applying the term horror broadly, this work includes discussions of black comedy, thrillers, science fiction, and slasher films.

Frames of Evil by Caroline Joan Picart,David A. Frank Summary

Challenging the classic horror frame in American film American filmmakers appropriate the ?look” of horror in Holocaust films and often use Nazis and Holocaust imagery to explain evil in the world, say authors Caroline Joan (Kay) S. Picart and David A. Frank. In Frames of Evil: The Holocaust as Horror in American Film, Picart and Frank challenge this classic horror frame?the narrative and visual borders used to demarcate monsters and the monstrous. After examining the way in which directors and producers of the most influential American Holocaust movies default to this Gothic frame, they propose that multiple frames are needed to account for evil and genocide. Using Schindler's List, The Silence of the Lambs, and Apt Pupil as case studies, the authors provide substantive and critical analyses of these films that transcend the classic horror interpretation. For example, Schindler's List, say Picart and Frank, has the appearance of a historical docudrama but actually employs the visual rhetoric and narrative devices of the Hollywood horror film. The authors argue that evil has a face: Nazism, which is configured as quintessentially innate, and supernaturally crafty. Frames of Evil, which is augmented by thirty-six film and publicity stills, also explores the commercial exploitation of suffering in film and offers constructive ways of critically evaluating this exploitation. The authors suggest that audiences will recognize their participation in much larger narrative formulas that place a premium on monstrosity and elide the role of modernity in depriving millions of their lives and dignity, often framing the suffering of others in a manner that allows for merely ?documentary” enjoyment.

Film Theory Goes to the Movies by James M. Collins Summary

This book claims that film theory is not just about Eisenstein any more. While film theory has produced a significant body of influential scholarship, defining the cutting edge of critical analysis for the past two decades, the majority of this work has focused on classic Hollywood, European cinema, and avant-garde films. More recent films, particularly blockbusters, are generally absent from this field of study, relegated to the realm of popular reviewing. This book attempts to fill this gap by providing provocative analyses of such films as The Silence of the Lambs, Dances With Wolves, Terminator II, Pretty Woman, Truth or Dare, Mystery Train and Jungle Fever. Within the field of film study, these essays argue for the continuing need to engage in critical, ideological dialogues, and within the broader context of the academy, this collection debates cultural authority, canonicity, multiculturalism, and radical pedagogy. Film Theory Goes to the Movies employs a variety of critical approaches, from industry analysis to reception study, to close readings informed by feminist, deconstructive, and postmodernist theory.
