Hannibal Rising

We saw “Hannibal Rising” yesterday.
We wanted to see this Saturday but the Chicago Reader had the wrong show times for the theatre. So, we went to the first showing on Sunday morning.

The movie was fun; it explains why Hannibal Lechter eats people, how he got involved in art and medicine, and why he doesn’t love anyone (like any good sociopath, right?). The movie has some problems, for example its not nearly as graphic as the other movies in the series. Its slow in spots (Aviva looked at my watch at one point). Visually, it wasn’t

But, if you’re a fan, you should see this movie anyway – you’ll probably enjoy it overall, I did, and hope a paperback edition comes out before our trip to Italy in May so I can take it along to read.
