Re: “The Silence of the Lambs

Rosenbaum says that "The film, like its flesh-eating psycho, is more bent on exploiting its insights than on teaching us anything." You see, our society is thoroughly inadequate with providing us with learning opportunities; do you realize our university resources, libraries, books, or magazines are insignificant? if not for the staid, dark movie theater to teach us, what chance do we have to gain the insights that Rosenboum displays here? In Hollywoo movies we have seen charactors, actually teachers in various disguises, come and show and tell us about life's truths, like my kindergarden teachers used to do. But, unfortunately in this movie, as Rosenbaum says "...that the psychotic serial killer is the essential religious figure of our time: saint, guru, seer, and soothsayer rolled into one." Wow, what a bitrayal.
