Butter 'em up! Hannibal's On Our Side!

"How He Arrived at That Acquired Taste"

Jeannette Catsoulis' review of the new Hannibal Lecter movie, "Hannibal Rising," reveals that Hannibal is Lithuanian:

"Like Leatherface and Freddy Krueger, Hannibal Lecter is a monster who thrives in the dark; probe his past, and there’s a danger of finding only banality.

But this is America, where all pathologies must be excavated and neutralized, so we’re off to 1944 Lithuania, where the Lecter family is facing down Nazis, Russians, Vichy French and wild boars."
