    Watch a side by side comparison of the famous ‘Red Dragon’ scene adapted three times

    The events of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon has been adapted to the screen three different times; first in Michael Mann’s Manhunter; later in Brett Ratner’s Red Dragon; and recently in Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal. Fans of the original source material will continue to argue about which is best adapted, specifically the famous scene in where Will […] More

    ‘Hannibal’ could live on in movie form, creator says

    A day after it ended, the creator of Hannibal says it could live on in movie form. In an interview with HitFix on Saturday, Bryan Fuller spoke about the possibilities of the show living on in different forms — namely a mini-series or movie. According to Fuller, it is all about financing and finding the […] More

    Hannibal, Ep. 3.13, “The Wrath of the Lamb”

    With “The Wrath of the Lamb”, Hannibal wraps up its run, at least for now. While all involved have been qualifying the episode as merely the series finale on NBC, the show has yet to be picked up anywhere else and several key figures have moved on to new projects. Creator Bryan Fuller has mentioned the possibility of the team reuniting for a film at some point down the line, but for the foreseeable future, this is the series finale of Hannibal, and given its bloody, spectacular climax, that feels appropriate.

    Hannibal, Ep. 3.12, “The Number of the Beast is 666…”

    Frederick Chilton has had a rough go of it in his time on Hannibal. He makes himself an easy target—the man has learned nothing, it would seem, from his disastrous experiences with serial killers over the years—but when faced with the enormity of the Dragon, Chilton is so unabashedly human, so relatable and terrified one can’t help but feel for him. Raúl Esparza has been a delight in the role throughout his tenure on the series, often giving a comedic lift to otherwise very dour episodes and arcs, but he’s particularly impressive here. Chilton’s terrifying capture by the Dragon makes up the center of the episode, but Esparza gets much more to play than fear. More

    KCC: Reitzell evolves the sound of the Dragon in Hannibal, Ep. 3.12, “The Number of the Beast is 666…”

    The string bass is featured prominently throughout this episode as the voice of the Dragon, groaning and growling in the shadows. Whereas Reitzell introduced the character in “The Great Red Dragon” with layers of percussion, the Dragon we hear here is very different: that was an instinctual, physical being, a wordless monster pulled to the surface by the phase of the moon.

    KCC: Reitzell’s subtle score adds tension to Hannibal, Ep. 3.11, “…And the Beast From the Sea”

    “The Girl with the Flaxen Hair” is a lovely and simple short piece for solo piano composed by Debussy. It’s a fantastic selection for several reasons, not the least of which is that it’s a beautiful piece. The simplicity of the piece also reflects Reba’s straightforward trust in Dolarhyde and the beauty of their relationship. However, for classical music fans, this selection acts as a warning. “The Girl with the Flaxen Hair”: only two women in this season fit that description, and Dolarhyde likely isn’t thinking about Bedelia.

    KCC: Reitzell’s impressionistic score adds romance to “And the Woman Clothed in Sun”

    The scene of Dolarhyde eating the painting has plenty of percussion, but not the same layered elements as the Dragon scoring earlier, when Dolarhyde woke up and Reba was gone. There’s a high wind chime-like sound, some rattling, and drums and cymbals, but not the different, distinct rhythms syncing up with each other, and the strings only come in towards the end, when Will and Dolarhyde see each other. The percussion builds in intensity and speed until it cuts off with Will’s discovery of Dolarhyde, leaving behind soft vocals and the aforementioned strings, and this is when we hear the more characteristic Dragon percussion.
