Did you actually enjoy the novel Hannibal? I'm pretty sure Foster turned down the role because of her distaste for the book, and frankly, I can't blame her, although I loved the first two in the series, esp. Red Dragon. But I have a high regard for your opinion in literary matters, so if you found something to like in Hannibal I might have to reread it. OT I know, but I'm interested in your opinion of the book.
I really did enjoy the novel Hannibal and liked the movie too but, as noted earlier, I feel sightly guilty about it. I read the novel a couple of times but not in the past few years.
