Joblo Review: Silence


All that said, I’m not sure how to grade Silence, and this is a case where a number grade feels too simple a rating. It’s not a question of good or bad – SILENCE is a good film. Is it an entertaining one? Probably not. The Mission is a more traditionally entertaining exploration of a similar crisis of faith, and Scorsese’s own The Last Temptation of Christ is far more stirring. Rather than aim for the heart, Silence aims for the head. Still, a part of me wishes Scorsese had made this an easier film to take in, and it’s one of the few ones from his canon that I won’t be in a rush to see again. It’s the type of film one submits to rather than watches, but if there’s any living filmmaker I’d submit to, it’s Scorsese.

The story is too old to be commented.
