Roddy's Favorite Movies
I can't praise this enough. The first real SF film ever, I think. It is certainly the first movie to treat Science Fiction seriously and to drag it kicking and screaming out of the B-movie gutter. The music, writing, direction, photography and casting all work seamlessly together to produce this stunning piece of work which has influenced SF on film and TV ever since. Everyone should see this at least once.
The debut of Anthony Hopkins groundbreaking performance as Hannibal Lecter, genius, aesthete, philosopher, psychiatrist, artist and serial killer cannibal. It's compulsive viewing from beginning to end and Hopkins completely steals the whole film.
