Films tonight: Manhunter or In The Name of The Rose

Just noticed, UK viewers, that the best Hannibal Lecktor flick, Manhunter, is on tonight on ITV2 at 10pm. It clashes with Sean Connery’s Umberto Eco adaption In The Name of the Rose on BBC4. Either’s worth watching, but I love Manhunter: it’s a "movie you should own".
