Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“No, Mason, I much prefer you the way you are.” Answer: Hannibal!
“Hannibal” was the first sequel to the 1991 hit “The Silence of the Lambs” and is not for the faint of heart! In this scene rich Mason Verger (Gary Oldman) has just described to Dr. Hannibal Lecter (played wonderfully again by Anthony Hopkins) his plans for getting revenge against Dr. Lecter. He had earlier been persuaded (while high on drugs) by Dr. Lecter to scrape off his face flesh with a piece of broken glass and feed it to dogs, leaving him with a horribly disfigured face. Dr. Lecter had been captured in Italy and was smuggled to Mason Verger’s home (strapped to an appliance dolly). Verger says line one and Dr. Lecter replies cooly with line two. “Hannibal” won several awards but no Oscars.
