Cinephile with Mark Borchardt: Clarice

In his ongoing animated review series, Mark Borchardt turns his attention to the small-screen spawn of an Oscar-winning classic.

For three decades, The Silence of the Lambs has kept us in its latent grip of searing terror and immortal dread. In a precise return to form – with dense stylization and ever-ticking momentum dutifully intact – the episodic offering Clarice makes manifest the nightmare once more Thursday nights on CBS. Don’t forget the fava beans…

Mark Borchardt is a filmmaker and playwright living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Some of his films include Coven, The Dundee Project and The More the Scarier VI.
