Also this weekend (cue menacing music): You know his name. You know his methods. You know his appetites. You, you know, you know his name. You know his name! Look up the number! You know his naaaaame …
... and you’re sick and frickin’ tired of it. Hannibal. Hannibal. Hannibal. Even reading it has you gouge-ready, huh?
Well then, in He-who-shall-not-be-named Rising, witness the boy cannibal in all his budding bloody glory. The H-man is portrayed here by French actor (freedom actor, if you prefer) Gaspard Ulliel. You may remember him from the freedom films A Very Long Engagement and Brotherhood of the Wolf. Rising also stars Rhys Ifans (who, according to the Internet Movie Database, was apparently attached to one of this week’s DVD releases,The Science of Sleep, at one point). Oh, and that guy from The Wire is in it, too.
I think it’s safe to say I’ll be staying in.
