Quite introspective and full of internal conflicts in a literary level. It is a difficult thing to film, and I think that Scorsese did a good job for such a challenging narrative. Acting is ok and photography is also competent. It is not the best or the flashiest Scorsese out there, but it scratches my introspection itch.

'Silence' isn't a piece of entertainment, it's instead an experience; and whilst a technically masterful one at that, many audience members may find themselves slowly drifting off to sleep - as my neighbour in the cinema did. It isn't really a case of liking it or disliking it, it's more a case of the adventure, and despite my partial disappointment with it, the adventure was more than worthy enough for the viewing. Scorsese is still an exquisite auteur, flaws or not.

Sticks close to the book in terms of content, but diverges subtly, and disappointingly, in tone. While both Endo and Scorsese seem to be speaking through Rodrigues, for Scorsese his role as a missionary seems to take precedence over his role as a Christian. Similarly, Inoue in the film is a Lorre/Waltz/Ledger jolly-creepy villain, and the "reveal" of his true identity is meaningless. The reasonable and amoral Inoue of the book is a much more formidable enemy to faith.

i cannot stand the improbable numbers of english speaking 17th century japanese people in this film. they were supposed to be speaking portuguese, along with the priests of course but that would have been even sillier. give me subs and native japanese. despite all the horrible suffering portrayed in this film it felt hollow and emotionless to me. it was a real grind to get through and i didn't feel like i learned anything at the end of it. visuals were great though.

Silence looks great and explores a unique intersection of Japanese and Christian history, but it's also terribly one-sided.

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.
