Sometimes I’m reviewing for quality, and sample twenty minutes of so of content, and in other situations a film stands that test so well that I forget that there’ another film on the stack to be reviewed.
That’s the case with Johnathan Demme’s thirty year-old police procedural thriller, The Silence of the Lambs.
Everything about this film is of such a high standard that it’s akin to a book one can’t put down.
In the case of Kino new 4k of the MGM production, everything is in the correct place.
Beautifully photographed. A lovely image harvest, along with audio is perfect. Black levels, grain structure, color, stability. There’s not a single point to fault.
A perfect 4k Blu-ray release.
And the film? As noted, a magnificent production. Not without Very minor faults, but things that will never be noticed by even the most attentive audience member.
Performances aren’t bad either.
