    It amazes me what we will do all in the name of a religion and man made beliefs. 2 years 3 months ago

    As someone that has often felt Scorsese's films, while very good, were not always the best they could be, I can't quite place into words why I've felt this and I don't have the time to review each and every one. Often, it's been little things that stood out as invariably imperfect. I often have felt that in comparison to other legendary filmmakers, Scorsese's films didn't hold a candle to them.

    So, I hereby wish to say that this may be just that film I've been looking to see from Scorsese. It is in my honest opinion the finest film he has ever made.

    I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this film, considering the other Andrew Garfield movie that featured religion, Hacksaw Ridge, was often too much for me. The religiosity of that film was off putting. I felt that in the case of Silence, I could sit back and understand these characters. The difference being, Hacksaw Ridge felt as if it were preaching, Silence did not.

    The cinematography in this film was nothing short of gorgeous and every shot was expertly handled. This reminded me in many ways of The Mission (1986).
