@Greg raised a question in the Train to Busan thread about the difference between Universe and Physics as an OS Domain. He specifically brought up Silence of the Lambs as an example.
Looking at the official analysis left me scratching my head.
Is the goal really about making progress in catching Buffalo Bill, or is it about actually catching him?
Is the consequence that Buffalo Bill will be able to act on his impulses, or that he’ll finish his suit and his transformation?
Are Clarice’s problems stemming from what she’s doing, or the fact that she’s a rookie and a woman trying to be taken seriously in the FBI.
Is the relationship between Clarice and Lecter really about their attitudes toward human beings, or about the cat and mouse mind games they play with each other?
Isn’t Hannibal Lecter’s influence entirely about him getting in her head, making her remember her childhood, and confront her fears and insecurities?
Pretty much everything seems off to me, but it’s more than possible that I’m just not seeing it.
So, in the spirit of accuracy and furthering our understanding, I’d like to open this thread for discussion about the official storyform of Silence of the Lambs.
