"For nearly 3 decades, Clarice has been without sisters, mothers, or daughters (although the detective Robin Griffin in Jane Campion’s TOP OF THE LAKE could surely be seen as a cousin). If ever there was a moment to rally around Clarice...it is right now."

"Demme’s direction, the mise-en-scène, and the score magnify Clarice’s interiority, but even without them, these feelings would be evident in Foster’s every glance and gesture. It is a complicated, perfectly calibrated performance...The film could not exist without her."

"In its deliberate, unabashed, & uncompromising feminism, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is to the horror–psychological thriller combo what Angela Carter’s THE BLOODY CHAMBER is to classical fairy tales...Both works take familiar stories...and turn them upside down."

"When Jonathan Demme’s THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS opened in theaters on Valentine’s Day 1991, it was clearly one of those rare movies that are at once of their moment and ahead of their time. Many years later, it remains both of these things."

"The sign of a master is that he deals in questions, not resolutions­—that he pulls us away from the payoffs of plot and into the maze of unsettled inquiry. By that token, THE HERO succeeds quite wonderfully, scattering far more questions than even Ray could begin to answer."

"The film is anchored at every moment in Kumar’s performance, and for me, it’s an astonishment. Everything about his appear­ance­...gives us a sense of spoiled entitlement...Yet the beauty of Kumar’s Arindam Mukherjee is that he has the capacity to surprise us, again and again."

"To some, this inward-looking experiment might seem a world away from the 1955 debut that made Ray’s name worldwide, PATHER PANCHALI...Yet what Ray is doing, at every turn, is asking himself what the point of cinematic make-believe might be, and what the cost."

"How does one make art while also appealing to the man on the street? Divert the viewer and yet extend her too, toward her depths? Such questions trouble every serious artist, but Satyajit Ray faced them with perhaps particular intensity."
