The Silence of the Lambs: Who Wins the Scene?

Here's a solid shot by shot breakdown by Tony Zhou  (Every Frame A Painting) of a scene from The Silence of the Lambs. An amazing amount thought, planning and staging went into this scene where Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins' characters meet for the first time. This is a great example of how important cinematography is to enhancing emotion and telling the story. Brilliant! Thanks to Tony for posting it!
