For those of you who didn’t get enough of Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter in Manhunter, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon, here’s another trip to the well, based on the Thomas Harris book. This prequel shows Hannibal in his formative years, from his childhood in Lithuania, to his decade in England to his days in Russia prior to his capture in the Red Dragon book. 121 minutes.
DVD INFO: Two separately packaged DVDs are available: One preserves the film in the anamorphic widescreen format, while the other hacks off nearly a third of the picture for the fullscreen (aka pan and scan) version. Shop carefully. Both versions include a commentary track by the filmmakers, deleted scenes and two featurettes.
