We love Cox...and Hopkins

Allen and Chris break out the chianti to talk the first two film incarnations of everyones favourite cannibal, Hannibal Lector (or Lecktor, if you prefer). Michael Mann's Manhunter, starring Brian Cox was a flop on release but it's reputation has grown to a bonafide cult classic. While Jonathan Demme's Silence Of The Lambs was a smash hit, with Anthony Hopkins taking over the role of Hannibal and launching the character into the pop culture zeitgeist. 

In an entertainment landscape filled with serial killers and cop procedurals we look at two of the films that influenced so much of what we see today.

In this episode:

-Michael Mann, style over substance? Hell no.

-Sure Hannibal gets all the press but lets talk about William Peterson and Jodie Foster as Will Graham and Clarice Starling

-Silence Of The Lambs, surprisingly socially sensitive for a big budget 90s serial killer flick

-a dream woman

-Dennis Farina

-Mindhunter

-party guests, ranked

-and we figure out the perfect first date
