Top 10 Movie Heels #7: Hannibal Lecter

My #7 heel, I want to point out is the Hannibal Lecter of "Silence of the Lambs" fame, not "Hannibal" Hanibal Lecter, and especially not "Red Dragon" Hannibal Lecter. Not that those movies were excessively bad or that he was not a heel, but there is just something more impressive about the mind games Hannibal played in "Silence of the Lambs." Not to mention that it was comical that Hannibal was supposedly younger in the "Red Dragon" movie. Maybe they should have waited a few more years for better CGI. Also, let's not forget the unreasonably bad "Hannibal Rising", I expected Hannibal to break out in dance with an umbrella turning it into a musical during that awful film.

Hannibal Lecter of "Silence of the Lambs" used dialogue to play such intense mind games with Clarice that she grew to respect him. His delivery,intelligence and disregard for human life made him one of the best movie heels ever.
