CLARICE, I COULD JUST EAT YOU...


N

ow get your minds out of the gutter. This is not the opening line to some sleazy, X-rated movie... (shame) I was merely quoting the infamous Dr. Hannibal Lector. We all remember him from Silence of the Lambs, right? Sir Anthony Hopkins... what a performance. And of course Agent Starling... Clarice Starling played by the incomparable Jodie Foster.

I watched this movie again yesterday for the umteenth time. I don't know why but every time it's on TV, I have to watch it again. One of the things I really enjoyed this time was that AMC the movie channel showing it, gave interesting backgrounds during commercials. For instance... in one scene you see a pencil sketch Dr. Lector drew, of Clarice holding a lamb. In the background you see Il Duomo, the Cathedral in Milan I believe. Even though it's never brought out in the movie, the scene of the Duomo can only be seen from the Hotel Belvedere in Milan.

Why is this important? Because the killer they are after lives in Belvedere, Ohio. Lector was giving Starling a clue. The movie also won 5 Academy Awards in 1991 and ranking up there with only two other movies to achieve that ranking.

I have a quick question for you... assuming you've seen the movie. What is Sir Anthony Hopkin's total screen time in the movie? Meaning how many minutes does he actually appear in it.

A. 16 minutes
B. 32 minutes
C. 34 minutes
D. 44 minutes

WAIT! Those were wrong. Here's the times again:

A. 16 minutes
B. 17 minutes
C. 18 minutes
D. 18.5 minutes
