The Criterion Collection has just released a new 4K digital restoration of 1991’s groundbreaking and Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs, approved by director of photography Tak Fujimoto, with a 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. And even though it has been ripped off and parodied a thousand times since then, director Jonathan Demme’s unlikely masterpiece retains all of its spooky charm and upholds its torchbearing reputation for having a strong (and complicated) female lead character.
