Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- It’s a film about Rodrigues’ interior journey and, in a career-best performance, Garfield realises it beautifully, his rock-solid belief slowly undermined by doubt.The film is lushly shot by cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto and stocked with indelible supporting turns, including Yosuke Kubozuka as a tragic Judas figure and Tadanobu Asano as a shrewd translator. -- Grade: B[I]t rewards patience with a transcendent epilogue that departs from the main character’s point-of-view to find a glimmer of meaning. -- Grade: B+Stripping back his signature style to deliver a stately epic comprising largely static shots accompanied by next to no score, Scorsese nonetheless enthralls...4 stars out of 4 -- SILENCE is a monumental work, and a punishing one. It puts you through hell with no promise of enlightenment, only a set of questions and propositions, sensations and experiences.The movie’s early scenes are filled with severe pictorial beauty...It’s remarkable how absorbingly, and indelibly, its story takes shape before our eyes.SILENCE is a remarkable achievement....SILENCE is the largest, most serious-minded examination of faith since Terrence Malick’s THE TREE OF LIFE...3.5 stars out of 4 -- It's essential filmmaking from the church of Scorsese, a modern master who lives and breathes in the images he puts on screen.[With] many unforgettable sequences of suffering and sorrow, filmed with such force and clarity by Scorsese and his cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, it’s difficult not to look away from the screen.The cinematography by the great Rodrigo Prieto uncovers gradations of light and color you didn’t know existed -- the visuals hover between reality and woodcut. As a work of craft, SILENCE is unparalleled.The struggle between apostasy and martyrdom -- not when one’s own death is at stake, but when one’s actions determine the fates of others -- is the sharp spearhead of SILENCE....Ultimately both tough and nuanced.In this passion project from director Martin Scorsese (who spent nearly three decades trying to get it made), a 17th century Portuguese Jesuit priest (Andrew Garfield) receives word that his mentor (Liam Neeson) has renounced his faith while on a mission in Japan. Concerned, he travels to the island nation with another clergyman (Adam Driver) to investigate, only to find that the country's Christian population are being systematically exterminated. Witnessing the inglorious reality of torture and martyrdom committed against Japanese Christians rocks his faith to the core. Based on Shusaku Endo's acclaimed 1966 novel.
