Hannibal Lecter trilogy

Template:Infobox Movie Hannibal is a 2001 film, directed by Ridley Scott about Hannibal Lecter's time in Italy following his escape from imprisonment. It is based on a novel, the last in the trilogy, by Thomas Harris. It is set ten years after The Silence of the Lambs where a surviving victim of Lecter's is out to torture and kill him.

Clarice Starling is in disgrace after killing five people in a botched drug raid. After a hearing, she is sent to interview Mason Verger, Dr Lecter's only surviving victim, after hearing that he has information.

Mason Verger tells the story of how he was under a court order to have therapy sessions with Lecter after being arrested on child sex abuse charges. Lecter forced him to inhale amyl nitrite fumes and told him to peel off his face and feed it to his dogs. After the incident, Verger is hideously disfigured and paralysed.

Meanwhile in Florence, Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi is investigating the disappearance of a library curator. Here he meets Dr. Fell, the new curator, whom he discovers is none other than Lecter. Pazzi, it turns out, is working for Verger, who is hell bent on revenge. After a discussion at the library, Lecter murders Pazzi by hanging and disemboweling him, a fate that Pazzi's ancestor Francesco Di Pazzi suffered 500 years before. Lecter escapes to America.

At the FBI, Inspector Paul Krendler is also working with Verger, by using Starling as bait to lure Lecter out of hiding. Lecter is captured by Verger's henchmen and is taken to a barn, where there are several large, man eating boars ready to eat Lecter alive. Starling rescues Lecter and Verger is pushed into the pit to be devoured. Lecter takes a wounded Starling out of the barn.

In a particularly horrifying scene, Lecter captures Krendler at his home and lobotomises him while still awake. Krendler is fed parts of his own brain. Lecter again escapes and leaves the country.

Starring Anthony Hopkins in his famous role, Julianne Moore taking over for Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling, Ray Liotta as Krendler and an uncredited Gary Oldman as Verger.

Trivia

The movie's ending is markedly different from that of the novel, in which Lecter and Starling become lovers. The ending was changed for the movie because of the blistering reviews it earned the novel.</p>

The scenes set in Starling's apartment were filmed in a house on Grove Ave. in Richmond, VA. Also, some scenes were set at Biltmore House.
