The Silence of the Lambs (1991, dir. Jonathan Demme)

An FBI trainee enlists the help of a serial killer inmate to catch a murderer. Still-excellent adaptation of the Thomas Harris novel, faithful to the book but its own thing also. Autumnal and austere, with just a touch of gothic, and loaded with subtext.
