The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Everyone remembers the scares, but Jonathan Demme’s Silence of the Lambs is a movie about empathy. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) knows everything but feels nothing; Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) knows nothing but feels everything. What she doesn’t know, she learns, under the most trying possible conditions, through courage and heart. The case isn’t cracked by the countless FBI agents and their expertise, but by a country girl FBI trainee who knows where another poor, working-class kid would hide her secrets. It is one of three films to sweep the lead Oscar categories, for good reason, and is, if you can’t tell, the all-time favorite movie of the person writing this. It’s also the first movie on this list that isn’t based on real people.

While several serial killers helped inspire Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill, Silence of the Lambs is not, thank God, a true story.

    You didn’t list Hoosiers or Rudy. Both uplifting, both based on true stories.
