yeah, manhunter isn't bad.
michael mann flick, no hopkins as lecter though.
watch lambs & red dragon for the hopkins hannibal. red dragon's pretty much the same story as manhunter, but with hopkins as lecter.
the "hannibal" movie was just too over the top hollywood for me, personally.
and i made it about 15 minutes into "hannibal rising" until i had to turn it off.
