Mikkelsen Chews Scenery and More As 'Hannibal'

Hannibal = Satan:
From The Silence of the Lambs: "The suite seemed enormous to Dr. Lecter after his long confinement. He enjoyed going to and fro in his suite and walking up and down in it."

From Job 2:2: "And the Lord said to Satan, “From where have you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.”"


  1. Yes, Lecter is a personification of Satan, and as such, he also represents the Wandering Jew, who was cursed to walk the earth after 'being rude' to a crucified Jesus.

  2. By eating rude people, Hannibal is, in part, trying to redeem himself.
