    Silence

    Martin Scorsese as we all know is a legendary director. He has created many of my favorite films which are Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, The Departed, Raging Bull, Mean Streets, The Aviator, Gang of New York, and Bringing Out The Dead. This film Silence is close to a 3 hour film which reminds me a lot of the classic films such as Ben-Hur and The Ten Commandments. It's a beautifully made film, but I can't agree that it is one of the greatest films of Martin Scorsese's career. This film is one of my favorite films and I recommend this film to anyone who has not yet watched a Martin Scorsese film.

    Scorsese's Passion Project

    Silence is a beautiful film, both aesthetically and thematically. Despite positive reviews, it seemingly came and went with little fanfare, and only managed a single nomination at the Academy Awards for its gorgeous cinematography. I also enjoyed Hacksaw Ridge, but of the two Andrew Garfield spiritual movies that came out last year, I highly recommend Silence to anyone with the patience to appreciate it. Hopefully it will be given another look in the future. FYI, Best Buy has the incorrect artwork on their website, so if you don't receive the cover pictured on the site, don't worry.

    Silence is a monumental film, destined to stand as a stalwart in cinema history as one of the most purposeful and precisely crafted in not only Scorsese's career but in contemporary moviemaking. It's radically different from much of today's mainstream moviemaking and it defines the medium as one capable of offering the sort of intimate, soulful, meaningful experiences the greatest stories demand. The film is beautifully acted, strikingly constructed, and one of the most thoughtfully and spiritually engaging films of its time.

    This film is not for the weak at heart. If you've ever had a crisis of faith in your given religion. This will most likely take you back down that path. Andrew Garfield should be up for another Academy Award for this, but because of how the release fell it'll fall into the lost and he won't be remembered by the time the award season rolls around.

    An Incredible Emotional Film

    Both actors (Garfield & Driver) portray themselves as priests and their dedication & commitment to both their characters and movie is apparent. You can see the physical & emotional tole it took on their bodies. It's even difficult to watch but harder to look away.

    Overall in good condition. There was a rip in the slipcover, but that's it. Were only a few left at the store. Was going to hold off for maybe a Criterion release of this, but will probably be many years off, if ever.

    Wondered how people can keep their faith in the face of all the tortures, drowning and misery they go through. I think of all religions, the Christians were the ones who suffered most because of their faith.

    This movie really flew under the radar, especially for being a Scorsese movie. It's actually now one of my favorite movies of his. Thw fact that it contained a iTunes/UV digital copy was an added bonus

    This movie is very slow, and long. Its not an action movie, theres no cool action scenes. There's a lot of narration, but the movie is good, and has great acting.

    Every so often good old Marty likes to makes these slow burn quite dramas which is what this is. Not Taxi Driver, not even comparable to something NOT his like The Revenant.

    I love the cast, the director, and the cinematography. It's a slow build, but there is plenty of beautiful scenery and superb acting to keep you invested.

    Didn't care for the movie boring and moved very slow. Was about a preacher and how Japan was against Christians

    Silence offers an interesting insight into the story of the Catholic Church's endeavor to Christianize Japan.
