Movie Reviews

The Telegraph - 10/10 by Robbie Collin It’s a film full of tight close-ups of hands accepting gifts that comfort, inspire and bring succour to their recipients’ souls. That’s how we should receive it.
Tampa Bay Times - 10/10 by Steve Persall Only Scorsese could craft a film of such moral gravity for multiplexes and fascinate for nearly three hours.
RogerEbert.com - 10/10 by Matt Zoller Seitz Silence is a monumental work, and a punishing one.
Los Angeles Times - 10/10 by Justin Chang Building implacable dread and tension from scene to scene, the story is as simple as its underlying ideas are endlessly complex.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Richard Roeper What beauty. What brutality. What madness.
Miami Herald - 10/10 by Rene Rodriguez Silence feels like a career summation for a filmmaker who has spent his life exploring his faith through his work. Here is a movie about the importance of religion that will move you, regardless of whichever God you worship — or don’t.
Consequence of Sound - 10/10 by Blake Goble Profound and illusory, Silence shows Martin Scorsese at the confessional, in sensationally cinematic style, delivering perhaps his most intimate work to date.
Slate - 10/10 by Dana Stevens Despite its technical and visual grandeur, there’s a moral simplicity to Silence that can sometimes recall the work of perhaps the other greatest deeply Catholic filmmaker, the French master Robert Bresson.
Time Out - 10/10 by Joshua Rothkopf Scorsese has hit the rare heights of Ingmar Bergman and Carl Theodor Dreyer, artists who found in religion a battleground that often left the strongest in tatters, compromised and ruined. It’s a movie desperately needed at a moment when bluster must yield to self-reflection.
Time - 10/10 by Stephanie Zacharek Silence is something to see whether you’re certain there’s a God or whether you just believe in sunlight, which covers just about everybody.
New York Daily News - 10/10 by Stephen Whitty Silence is a slowly unfolding, deeply thoughtful film about questioning yourself. About questioning authority. About taking stock of where you've failed as a human being, and wondering how you can make amends — to yourself, to others, and to God.
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Ty Burr The movie’s being promoted as the third in the director’s unofficial trilogy of faith, after “The Last Temptation of Christ” (1988) and “Kundun” (1997), and it feels like a self-conscious masterpiece, a summing-up from a filmmaker who, at 74, may be thinking of his legacy.
