Red Dragon (2002)

In this superior remake of "Manhunter" (1986), Francis Dolarhyde (Ralph Fiennes) takes his blind girlfriend Reba McClane (Emily Watson) on a special tiger-stroking trip to help her remember what big cats look like.

Thomas Harris told Dino De Laurentiis that he thought this was the best adaptation of any of his books.

The symbolic nature of the feline "manhunter" involved in both films is obvious.
