Movie Reviews

Tampa Bay Times - 10/10 by Steve PersallOnly Scorsese could craft a film of such moral gravity for multiplexes and fascinate for nearly three hours.
Matt's Movie Reviews - 10/10 by Matthew PejkovicWhile the silence of the mainstream media in covering the issue of Christian persecution is deafening, a film such as Silence serves as a powerful reminder of faith tested, faith tortured, and faith defined, yet never faith destroyed.
Film Freak Central - 10/10 by Walter ChawLike the resolution of Ted Chiang's Tower of Babylon, there is no answer in inward faith: there's only the outward expression of grace. Silence is a masterpiece.
Cinema em Cena - 10/10 by Pablo VillaçaA brilliant reflection about complex themes that always showed up on Scorsese's films but are approached here in new and beautiful ways. [Full review in Portuguese]
AwardsCircuit.com - 10/10 by Clayton DavisHistory has remembered "Citizen Kane" and "Vertigo." These were two films not whole heartedly recognized as masterpieces of their time. History now, will remember "Silence," a marvelous and inspiring cinematic experience not to be forgotten.
NPR - 10/10 by Mark JenkinsThe director's most punishing film since Raging Bull.
NOW Toronto - 10/10 by Norman WilnerLike most of Scorsese's oeuvre, Silence explores the link between physical suffering and spiritual conviction, but this time he seems willing to consider a darker question: not "What if it's all for nothing?" but "How will we know?"
The Script Lab - 10/10 by Nguyen LeIt's through this simplicity that depictions of love for Jesus ... subtly stir while the shoguns' brutality ties knots in stomachs.
Fort Worth Weekly - 10/10 by Kristian M. LinWhatever your beliefs might be, it will make you think.
Excelsior - 10/10 by Lucero SolórzanoA memorable expression of the New York director, that doesn't seem like it was made by Scorsese, as he handles a different narrative line and film language. [Full review in Spanish]
