    Jonathan Demme's frightening psychological thriller, based on Thomas Harris's bestseller, is about an FBI agent (Jodie Foster) who tries picking the brain of an intelligent psychopath/cannibal Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) in hopes of solving a series of grisly murders. A critical and commercial success, Lambs is one of the most superbly-crafted, suspenseful films ever, and became just the third film in the history of the Oscars to sweep the top five major awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay (Ted Tally).
