Hannibal Rising
Who would have thought mass murder and cannibalism could be so dull?
Film Review  February 9, 2007, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Writer Thomas Harris, creator of legendary Hollywood sociopath Dr. Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter, has been asked countless times over the last 25 years how it was his hero came to be a monster..."

The Mighty Hannibal Sees All
The Atlanta soul man has stories to tell, and who cares if they're true?
DAILY Music  August 27, 2008, by Thomas Fawcett
"...“I want somebody to tell my mother and go down yonder in Georgia and tell my father that I’m way over here crawling in these trench holes covered with blood,” yearns the Mighty Hannibal on his devastating 1966 anti-war anthem. “But one thing that I know … there’s no tomorrow, they’re burying me.” In a just world, “Hymn No..."

Hannibal Buress
The effortlessness of Hannibal Buress? That's just 12 years of him working to become a better comic.
Arts Story  April 18, 2014, by Russ Espinoza
"...It wasn't all brass bands and pickle juice en route to prominence as a stand-up comedian for Hannibal Buress. The dry, eccentric Chicago native dropped out of college to pursue his dream in New York City, only to find himself sleeping in subway cars shortly after...."

It walks like Hannibal Lecter. It talks like Hannibal Lecter. But it sure doesn't taste like Hannibal Lecter. This sequel to the wildly popular The Silence of the Lambs arrives...

Aural History
Hannibal Lokumbe and Jeff Lofton's Jazz Traditionalism
Music Story  February 12, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"..."I don't know him," admitted Jeff Lofton of Hannibal Lokumbe a few weeks before this issue's cover shoot. "That's somebody I'd like to connect with and play with, because he's a great player and he's played with some great people." The photo op, by all accounts – Lofton and Lokumbe blowing their trumpets – was great as well..."

Red Dragon
There's a scene in Red Dragon -- a bigger-budgeted remake of Michael Mann's 1986 film Manhunter -- in which Edward Norton, as FBI agent Will Graham, suffers an epiphany while...
Film Review  October 4, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...The movie wants you to lose your breath along with the gang up on the screen, and for the most part it works. Red Dragon is head and viscera above the turgid opulence of Ridley Scott's Hannibal (still one of the best comestible comedies I've ever salivated my way through -- be daring and plan a dinner party around it like I did and see how many friends you have left come l'entrements), although it scores, too, when it comes to good old-fashioned, meat-and-potatoes suspense..."

Desperate Measures
Desperate, indeed. While the crazed implausibilities in films such as Face/Off induce a fevered delirium that's like some sweet drug, the inane plottings in movies like Desperate Measures induce something...

Film Review  January 30, 1998, by Steve Davis
"...(Andy Garcia's foolhardy father in Desperate Measures is the flip side of Mel Gibson's heedless papa in last year's Ransom; while madmen dictate whether their sons live or die, one man acts recklessly out of love, while the other acts recklessly out of principle.) The pairing of Garcia and Keaton as the pursuer and pursued doesn't click from the start. Their initial meeting should have played like that of Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lecter – a test of wits, intellect, and emotion, sharpened by a palpable tension..."

Lang's unnerving tale of a deranged child-killer (with Lorre in a star-making turn) is a riveting example of Expressionist filmmaking.
Film Review  December 5, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...Lorre, for his part, found a career-making part in this less-than-palatable role. Frantic and bug-eyed, Hans Beckert is the great-granddaddy of the Norman Bates/Hannibal Lecter crowd, and his final, tortured confession amidst the scruffy denizens of the Berlin underworld (“I can't help it! I can't control this evil thing inside me!”) is simultaneously ghastly and pathetic..."

Split Second
Let's get this straight right up front: this film is silly, pointless, absurd, confusing, asinine, and more than a little fun. If you don't mind watching a British sci-fi cheapie...
Film Review  May 8, 1992, by Marc Savlov
"...The year is 2008, and London is has become a partially submerged hellhole thanks to unchecked global warming. Police zip about in speedboats and fortified Jeeps, popping off shots at the city's burgeoning rat population and trying to track down a mysterious serial killer who devours the hearts of his victims a la Hannibal Lecter..."

Books Review  July 22, 1999
"...You have to like a book where the only thing to whine about is the bass drum pedal breaking in the middle of a big solo at a high school dance. -- Dick Holland Hannibal..."

Books Column  June 10, 1999, by Clay Smith
"...Dispatch from dementia: Having stayed up most of the night reading Hannibal (Delacorte Press, $27.95), Thomas Harris' sequel to The Silence of the Lambs, I've been looking over my shoulder to stare down the type of people routinely investigated by the Behavioral Science section of the FBI, the type of people who have been following me around with great frequency since the night I read the book. Just staring at them doesn't do much good..."

Review: Oddball Comedy Festival
The very blue tour finale was beautifully, shamefully funny
DAILY Arts  September 24, 2014, by Russ Espinoza
"...While it’s fair to say that this year’s lineup – which for Austin’s purposes consisted of Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, Marc Maron, Whitney Cummings, Hannibal Buress, and Reggie Watts – out star-powered 2013’s ensemble of Dave Chappelle, Flight of the Conchords, Demetri Martin, and Kristen Schaal, it was the ostensibly impeccable behavior of Sunday evening’s capacity crowd that provided the most welcome juxtaposition. (For the record: Buress was also featured at last year’s show.)..."

Ali Farka Toure: Niafunke and Taj Mahal & Toumani DiabateKulanjan
Music Review  September 10, 1999, by Jay Hardwig
"...Ali Farka ToureNiafunke (Hannibal/Rykodisc) Taj Mahal & Toumani DiabateKulanjan (Hannibal/Rykodisc) Africa is the land where the blues were born. If you've always thought that was just another way of saying that black folks invented it, you've missed the point: American blues has been shot through with African forms from the day the first slave landed his sore and lonely feet on Southern soil..."

Bad Samaritan
David Tennant plays Hannibal Lecter, which is less fun than it sounds.
Film Review  May 4, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...It's like he turned up for a real hardcore nightmare, like something the gleeful goredogs of Unearthed Films would dig up from the underground. Instead, it's straight out of the glut of post-Silence of the Lambs potboilers, like The Bone Collector, only even marginally redeemed by Tennant surpassing the discount-store Hannibal Lecter tag so easily applied to that subgenre’s antagonists..."

He scored short film "A Portrait of Noomi Rapace," appeared on Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, and was tapped by comedian Hannibal Buress to be his in-studio DJ for Why?
