<< Actually, Brian Cox played Hannibal Lecter and I've
heard a a lot of people
say over the years that he was better than Anthony Hopkins in
the role. >>
Not only is Cox's Lecter far more chilling than Hopkins' over
the top interpretation, the guy who plays Dolarhyde is
utterly terrifying. Bill Peterson and Dennis Farina are more
than serviceable in their roles, and Stephen Lang does a
great Freddy Lounds. There is real, piss-in-your-pants fear
in his voice as he reads the Red Dragon's note into the tape
... being set on fire. Comparing directors of the two
projects, Brett Ratner of RUSH HOUR fame is not the filmmaker
Michael Mann is.
