'Silence' Review

Silence is a movie that Martin Scorsese has wanted to make for decades. It tells the story of two Jesuit priests (Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver) in the 17th century traveling from Portugal to Japan to hunt down their missing mentor (Liam Neeson). Arduous, demanding, uneven, imperfect, Silence is also a real knockout in certain ways. I struggled with it, which is perfect for a film about faith. My review is live at Screen International.
