Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter-- brilliant, cunning and ruthless, debuted in Red Dragonand continued his adventures in The Silence of the Lambs, the highly praised and best-selling novels by Thomas Harris

Chillingly portrayed by Anthony Hopkins in the 1991 movie (which won Oscars in the 5 major areas-- best actor, actress, director, screenplay and picture), Hannibal Lecter entered the pop culture lexicon. Hannibal has captured the imagination of the public and refuses to let go.

Did anyone except me find the movie Hannibal very unlike the original Silence of the Lambs and one before Manhunter.

Perhaps the story should not have been centered around Hannibal, since he is really very unsavory and totally unlikeable.

Perhaps it was just me -- and I normally am fascinated with Ridley Scott's movie making techniques. Just didn't care for this movie at all. Would like to hear from you on this.

Read recently that "Red Dragon" is being remade starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal. It was previously made, entitled "Manhunter," [Dir. Michael Mann, 1986] starring William Petersen (CSI) as Will Graham, the profiler, Dennis Farina as Jack Crawford and Tom Noonan as Francis Dollarhyde. I thought it was an above-average and overlooked film.

In some ways this film was scarier than "Silence of the Lambs," because the character of the Tooth Fairy was superbly and understatedly played by Tom Noonan and William Petersen was excellent as the profiler drug kicking and screening back to stare into the abyss. Check is out.

Of note, there will be another Hannibal Lector book - although Thomas Harris said he was through writing about him.

Famous fictional characters have a life of their own, if you know what I mean.

I have read all the books with Hannibal Lecter in them including the newish one Hannibal Rising. I have also seen all the movies except Manhunter. They are really good.
