Director Jonathan Demme's highly controversial new film Silence of the Lambs stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins. A huge success in America, it opens in Britain this weekend, but can a violent film about a serial killer who hunts women be justified? The film-makers who adapted reclusive novelist Thomas Harris's bestseller for the screen are interviewed, as are Jodie Foster and Jonathan Demme, and Miami Vice creator Michael Mann discusses Manhunter, his very different adaptation of another serial killer novel by Harris.
