This is late notice, but a great film -- featuring smart writing, one of film's greatest villains, and a strong local angle -- is to be broadcast in the Pittsburgh area tonight (7:30, on a channel called WPCW). The Silence Of The Lambs earned five Oscars (the five: picture, writing, directing, actoring, actressing) after being filmed in locations such as the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall, McKeesport, Western Center (Canonsburg), the former Allegheny County Jail, and Perryopolis.
Is it difficult to focus on spotting local landmarks, however, when Dr. Hannibal Lecter -- a physician who provides new meaning to "pathologist," at the intersection of erudition and dysfunction -- psychoanalyzes fledgling FBI agent Clarice Starling, demonstrates the power of attention to detail and deductive reasoning, or discusses culinary concepts.
There might be a dozen better films in America's inventory. There might not be. I encourage you to try to resolve that issue.
