The Silence of the Lambs (7/12) Movie CLIP – Love Your Suit (1991) HD


Senator Martin… Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Dr. Lecter… I brought an affidavit guaranteeing your new rights. You want to read it before I sign. I won’t waste your time or Catherine’s time bargaining for petty privileges. Clarice Starling and that awful Jack Crawford have wasted far too much time already. I only pray they haven’t doomed the poor girl. Let me help you now, and I will trust you when it is all over. You have my word. Paul? Buffalo Bill’s real name is Louis Friend. I met him just once. He was referred to me in April or May, 1980, by my patient, Benjamin Raspail. They were lovers, you see. But Raspail had become… very frightened. Apparently Louis had murdered a transient… and done things with the skin. We need his address, and a physical description. Tell me, Senator… …did you nurse Catherine yourself? What? Did you breast-feed her? – Now, wait a minute. – Yes. I did. Toughened your nipples, didn’t it? You son of a bitch! Amputate a man’s leg and he can still feel it tickling. Tell me, mom, when your little girl is on the slab… …where will it tickle you? Take this thing back to Baltimore. 5’10”, strongly built, about 180 pounds. Hair blonde, eyes pale blue. He’d be about 35 now. He said he lived in Philadelphia, but may have lied. That’s all I can remember, mom. But if I think of any more, I will let you know. Oh, and Senator, just one more thing… …love your suit.

  1. 1:41 THAT description has always stuck with me thru tha years since I first saw this movie!
    5 foot 1O strongly built about 18O pounds, hair blonde, eyes pale blue…He'd be about 35 now he said he lived in Philadelphia but may have lied

  2. from the book:

    Dr. Hannibal Lecter sat alone in the middle of the room in a stout oak armchair bolted to the floor. A blanket covered his straitjacket and leg restraints and concealed the fact that he was chained to the chair. But he still wore the hockey mask that kept him from biting.
    Why? the Senator wondered– the idea had been to permit Dr. Lecter some dignity in an office setting. Senator Martin gave Chilton a look and turned to Gossage for papers.
    Chilton went behind Dr. Lecter and, with a glance at the camera, undid the straps and removed the mask with a flourish.
    "Senator Martin, meet Dr. Hannibal Lecter."
    Seeing what Dr. Chilton had done for showmanship frightened Senator Martin as much as anything that had happened since her daughter disappeared. Any confidence she might have had in Chilton's judgment was replaced with the cold fear that he was a fool.

  3. Notice when the plane engine starts up, and how as it gets louder and higher pitched, the scene becomes more intense.

    I love psychological details like that. Like in the ending as well, when there’s an obvious storm coming as Hannibal walks down the street behind the man.

  4. Some say the scariest kind of man is a terrorist or sadistic murderer. On the contrary I argue the scariest is a man who acts and seems completely sane, yet he's not

  5. The power dynamic in this scene is absolutely incredible. Everyone in it is completely free to move at will, leave whenever and go wherever…except for the most powerful man in the room, who’s strapped to a gurney with a mask on.

  6. Nice 👌 boobs detective starling…are u strapped well enough for me? Don't be bouncing on my dirty cell ok now… yummy yummy food

  7. I now understand that he did it to prove a point. He doesnt need his body or even his teeth to inflict horrific injury. All he needs is the use of his tongue. The pain of those words is a wound that will never close. Even after Catherine's rescue it's something that will haunt her forever.

  8. Well hold a labradoodle for ransom the whole coven of warlocks collapses something like holding Dracula to the Sun & all the vampires die off with him.
    Btw the Phantom of the Opera became bc of being a perv that had acid thrown in his face in photo developing (red room) centre 😏

  9. It's eerie how the mask compounds the menace. Or, thinking about it, I guess a mask would do that, wouldn't it? I ought to delete this comment, but it might give a few folk a laugh.
