The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
“Buffalo Bill,” the serial killer who skins women alive for a women’s suit of real skin he’s making, was just one of the characters gay activists took issue with when The Silence of the Lambs was released in 1991. The film went on to win five Oscars (including acting awards for Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster), and director Jonathan Demme won praise from gay audiences for his next feature, Philadelphia.
