  • 5 stars Like very much, excelent...
  • 5 stars I was all in from the opening scene at the Japan hot-spring/hell ... I'm still thinking through what happened. I never before and want to again experience that exquisite journey of suffering... nothing gratuitous in the violence and beautifully raises the dilemma of holding faith in the face of one's own and others' agony.
  • 1 stars Incredibly slow and boring. Scorsese has created some wonderful work in the past but this caused me to walk out of the theater.
  • 5 stars Incredibly well shot film and visually stunning. The scenes almost seem like gorgeous Italian paintings. There is no doubt in my mind that Martin Scorsese is one of the greatest artists of our time. The acting is phenomenal. This movie is Oscar worthy! Although long, it is worth it, and will leave you pondering for a long time the relationship one has with one's own faith, the fear of new faiths, and ideology vs pragmatism. A.N
  • 2 stars Too slow. Too much voice over.
  • 5 stars Very cerebral... makes you really ponder afterwards!
  • 5 stars Scorsese continues to make better films than people half his age, great film. Hope this'll win him his second Oscar.
  • 4 stars A very powerful and somber movie. Very thought provoking and shines a light about a time that I never heard of before. The studios and Scorsese were very brave to back and make this movie as its not going to be a blockbuster. It's long and dark so be prepared for it.
  • 3 stars Acting good and cinematography great although movie is a big long and some aspects dragged out a bit.
  • "Silence" is an emotional movie that shows the suffering of Jesuit priests in the 17th century. We see the cruelty of Japanese people toward christianity. Father Rodrigues and Father Ferreira survived torture to give up their faith.
