Silence of the Lambs (1991)
On-screen chemistry hasn't been this electrifying since Bogart and Bacall, and Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins never even make physical contact. The intensity never lets up in this brilliant psychological thriller that swept the 1991 Oscars. FBI agent Foster interviews vicious murderer Hopkins, hoping he will help the bureau catch another serial killer who's preying on young women. The interrogations turn personal as Hopkins, a psychiatrist, turns the tables and makes Foster his vulnerable subject.
