The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris is a grippingly powerful thriller novel, the second to feature the infamous literary villain Hannibal Lecter. I recently saw this documentary via Netflix and, since I loved the Hannibal series (one of my all time favorite films is Hannibal Rising) I thought I would share this for Documentary Sunday. Here, we learn the real crimes and people that inspired the novel as well as the 1991 film starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins.
