Martin Amis's essay/review collection The War Against Cliche includes a deadly takedown of the novel Hannibal which laments the book precisely because Amis regards the author's prior novels so highly. Amis contends that it's a case of a fine popular/literary novelist taking a sharp turn into utter hackdom.

I'll have to watch Blow Out again and look for the Lecter. There's a lot of Bette Davis drag routine in Hopkin's performance too.

Man, I gotta read that. I'm a big believer in the merits of Red Dragon.
