This one didn't work for me. The best scene was when Neeson finally returns to the screen (like we never expected that to happen) and he and Garfield debate the success of christianity in Japan. In this scene some of the main themes of the film are brought to a head intelligently. However everything up to that scene was overly drawn out, and everything after far less interesting. Maybe this is one of these films that means more if you're already spiritually invested in catholicism, but I am not.

Despite some mediocre acting and it's slow pace, Silence manages to delve into deep religious commentary without seeming preachy. Also, points for the cinematography and Issei Ogata, who played the inquisitor, Inoue, wonderfully.

scorsese olmasa ilgimi zerre çekmeyecek bir hikayeden, inanç üzerine izlediğim -ve hatta belki okuduğum- en *güzel*, dokunaklı ve etkileyici birikim çıkıyor ortaya, hepsi yine scorsese sayesinde. olmaması gereken bir yerde yaşamaması gereken şeyler yaşayan bir insan, temelinde mesele zaten insan... post-modernistlere selamı ben söylerim.

Not suitable for a general audience (about 10 people walked out of the cinema). It moves very, very slowly and you must have a strong will to sit through it. But this is a type of film that is rare today; and I was one of the few to enjoy it somewhat.

So many hard questions here. Can everything be forgiven at any time? How do we act when there are earthly and heavenly forces which are way bigger than us? I had my problems with the epilogue but I can't deny that I felt the seriousness of it. Some of the symbolism goes too far but that's really the exception here. And I just loved the slow pacing. Really powerful stuff.

Has the hallmarks of a Scorsese film, the adventurous cinematography for one, another would be (for the lion share of his other films) the Roman Catholic imagery. Here of course, there is no subtlety required & we are immersed in the divine. Which in this case, is swamp caked Japanese peasants and 2 forlorn priests. Given the pet project nature of the film & lengthy production, the timing of the release is conveniently relevant when looking at the level of religious persecution in today's world.

It's way more complex than it appears to be. It starts as a celebration of religious devotion and with a very simple negative view on Japanese society. But then the movie slowly casts more and more doubt in Garfield (and the viewer) about his own moral assumption and prejudices. Making it seem like a very unstable movie in its message. But that's the whole point ; making the viewer doubt himself about his views on right and wrotn.

It's hard to rate this movie because my feelings about it are all over the place. The beginning of the film is beautiful, but as it drags on it becomes tedious and painful to sit through. I heard many snores in the theater and more than a few people left. That being said I found myself thinking about this movie for weeks after I saw it. And the visuals are some the most beautiful I've seen in a long time.

as a movie, very well made, and as a documentary on the history of religion I appreciate it. But... when push comes to shove it seems to make a loud point that god exists after all and looks over our shoulder, which gives a bitter taste of propaganda for a concept that has prooved its danger over and over: religious splitting among the human kind, and every disaster that comes with it.

We now return to INAPPROPRIATE MOMENTS DURING A SCREENING OF SILENCE: 1. Elderly woman 3 seats away from me dozing off after 40 minutes and snoring like an angry T-Rex 2. Ill-bred Neanderthal behind me masticating his popcorn like a starving camel 3. Devout agnostic (read: me) struggling to stifle a laugh as Jesus' voice is heard. Not even God could come up with such a perfectly ironic scenario.

If you see one 2016 film starring Andrew Garfield that deals with faith and convictions, make it Mel Gibson's "Hacksaw Ridge." The subject matter in "Silence" is very interesting and timely. But someone needs to cut a full hour from this to make it watchable.

A strong 3rd act when Liam Neeson finally turns up and the reality hits in, but everything leading up to it wasn't really convincing. Too slow, long & hammy. I had expected better from Martin Scorsese. It was like he didn't really understand the cultural aspects of the story well enough. Perhaps he should stick to urban New York stories he loves so much instead of going abroad. I did mark out for the very brief cameo by pro-wrestler Yoshihiro Takayama! I can recognize those grunts a mile away.

As one reviewer put it, it is punishingly long and woefully unengaging, even in it's most climactic moments. It was absolutely gorgeous to see and the acting was strong, but this was too much of a passion project. It may be because I lack the devout ways of these priests, but I could not align myself with anyone and continually questioned their motivations. Garupe's internal battle was interesting to watch but overall this was too much. Possibly the only Scorsese flick I never care to see again.

I am a bit biased because of my catholic upbringing. This movie is a challenging experience; you can see the passion of Marty for this subject of faith and impossible decisions. The story is well told and the action is repetitive but what is important is the character development, this movie kept me thinking long after finishing it about pride and faith.

A little more insight into the main character's choice between martyrdom and defeat plus a lead actor with some more charisma could've made this amazing. It's a great-looking film, but I thought it was too repetitive and ultimately lacking in terms of a satisfying story arc. Although I often found myself less than engaged (truth be told... okay, I was bored), the fascinating details of the clash between devoted people did make it a journey which (albeit strenous) was ultimately worth taking.

Luckily I truly believe that you don't NEED to be a Christian to come to a place of enjoyment with this movie. The story is compelling. At times, brutal. I thought Driver and Garfield were excellent. The use of sound, from the piercing crescendos to the deafening silences, spectacularly done. And then there are a few elements here and there that are, quite frankly, silly. As a whole, however, the movie is not diminished by a few silly moments. This is well-crafted and definitely worth watching.

Of course it's pretty and well made, but I haven't been so bored watching a movie for quite a while, I didn't care about any of the characters or what's happening to them at all. Maybe if you're a religious person you can get something from this movie, but for me any attempts at drama felt flat and I just couldn't care less.

I'm pretty fond of this, particularly the final act with Ferreira which complicates the fundamental binary that Rodrigues was using to interpret the world. I am also unsurprised at its chilly box office reception among a large target audience of Western Christians, people who associate their faith with victory and triumph. A film that links faith so closely with the suffering of Jesus and suggests that the very nature of the life of faith is persevering amid wickedness must seem foreign to them.

I'm really annoyed. Not at the movie, but because Scorsese made an excellent film about a very serious subject which I'm having an impossible time criticizing in 500 characters or less. How am I supposed to tackle the silence of God, and the silence of his messengers on Earth, in a droll and pithy manner? Son of a bitch. I'll just say this: leave it to Scorsese to shift gears from his most manic film to possibly his most deeply serious, deliberate and introspective.

Silence is Scorsese's paean to mid-century Japanese cinema. Though it is a gorgeous film, it is best enjoyed at home as this is not a loud, bold and brash Scorsese film, but instead very muted. It is a lot of build-up with a very satisfactory payoff followed by what feels like a tacked-on conclusion that keeps this from being great. Looks to be going under-the-radar this year, but do check it out as it is very rewarding for cinephiles.

Scorsese always does a great job of making the viewer feel like you're hanging out with the main character and he accomplishes here again. I really enjoyed feeling immersed in another culture as well. I would have likely to hear more of the back-and-forth conversations that don't really occur until the back hour or so, but I did appreciate all the different angles Scorsese comes at religion. It's not the same thought over-and-over, it's a million different looks at it.

This is first and foremost a film of ideologies, and in that regard I found it utterly unappealing. We're obviously supposed to sympathise with the Jesuit priests here, but that's really difficult if you think that what they're trying to do is reprehensible, and it's equally difficult to care about their Japanese captors, who are behaving abominably. So even though Silence is masterfully directed and visually stunning, I struggled mightily to enjoy it. And Andrew Garfield didn't help.
