Anthony Hopkins was frigging AWESOME. ...The first serial killer movie where you were actually glad he got away.
Hopkins was, but I wasn't (glad he got away). His character was still an evil killer who should have been taken out of circulation. The fact that he had tracked down the amoral prison chief at the end was ironic justice, but still not satisfying to me, despite his help in capturing Buffalo Bill. Those 2 slaughtered guards alone made his escape wrong.
BTW, my own favorite movie... I dunno, too many, and depends on my mood. I think Citizen Kane is sheer genius, Gone With the Wind a masterpiece, the first Star Wars breathtaking, the first Indiana Jones a constant thrill, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert campy fun, Victor/Victoria the most beautifully crafted thing Blake Edwards ever made. And those are just for starters.
