Silence of the Lambs Pt 2: Head in Jar,Moth in Throat,Girl in Pit

Team Experience is revisiting 1991's Best Picture,Silence of the Lambsfor its 25th anniversary.In Pt 1 we met our protagonistFBI student Clarice Starling,given an errand by her boss to question serial killer Hannibal the Cannibal in hopes of gaining insight into a new case,a killer named "Buffalo Bill".We begin where Kieran left us with our intrepid heroine,Clarice Starling,sliding herself narrowly into an ominous storage facility thanks to a lead (of sorts) from Hannibal Lecter.

Let's see what she finds inside,shall we?

Pt 2 by Angelica Jade Bastién

00:24:43 A bloody cut from some rotten wood will be the least of Clarice's problems

00:25:35 Creepiest storage facility ever,right?Thus far we've seen disparate parts from pale mannequins,a taxidermy owl suspended mid flight,and other odd oddities covered in dust.

00:26:05 The fear and curiosity on Clarice's face is palpable.I think what makes her such a compelling lead are those qualities coupled with her bravery.I've been bothered recently by seeing many female characters who are either so strong they seem infallible or faux girl-power creations.Clarice is compelling because of her humanity and complications.

Coming Soon
The X-Filesstars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are returning to their iconic roles for a miniseries.The original series lasted 9 years and was revived in two feature films so it's had quite a shelf-life.
VarietyI find BAFTA so confusing.They have so many different awards branches and different announcement times.But the TV craft nominations are out with Penny Dreadful doing well
Ryan MurphyChloe Sevigny returning toAmerican Horror Storynext season.She was a pleasant surprise for me on Netflix'sBloodline.I forget sometimes how totally watchable she is

Three Must Reads To Go

1.If you're a fan ofBuffy the Vampire Slayer(and who isn't) you'll LOL all through The Toast's"Every Argument about Buffy on the Internet,From 1998 Until Now."It's blissfully true to its title.

2.This doesn't have a movie connection apart from a well earned dig at that awfulFlawlessmovie starring Philip Seymour Hoffman but The New York Times has an essayon the feminist evolution of the word "flawless"that is really something.A great read.

3.David Poland has said these things before and will say them again.And we've also harped on his underlying theme / advice to the Academy - 'Embrace the fact that you're THE movie institution.be proud,not worried.' But it's always worth repeating and he does a great job in"48 Weeks to Oscar: Academy in Crisis (?)"at highlighting all the problems...which don't have to be problems!Read it (if you've ever bitched about or defended the Oscars).亚博主页Live it (if you're AMPAS).Love it (if you love the Oscars).亚博主页

That's a lot to read and discuss,so have at it!

Twenty Years A Sculder

JA from MNPPhere - typing this now I'm realizing I actually have no idea what Nathaniel's stance is on The X-Files,but today's the 20th anniversary of the very first episodeif you can believe it,so I figured I'd check in with you guys,see if we have an fans up in The Film Experience.亚博主页I can never quite believe that I came as late to the show as I did - it was firmly up my alley even back then,but it wasn't until well into the show's fifth season that I started watching.I think that maybe corresponded with the first movie?Anyway I was hooked just in time for the quality to take a nose-dive (hello Annabeth Gish),but I stuck with it straight to the muddied end.There's been talk ever since the second movie in 2008 of a third film,wrapping it all up - do you want to see it come back?Or should Mulder and Scully stay off in the sunset?

And how freaking fabulous does Gillian Anderson look these days (she is divine on Hannibal) anyway?Sound off on your favorite X-Files moments in the comments!
