Highly Suspect Reviews: Silence

How does one review this type of film? I mean, yeah, it’s a film by Martin Scorsese, one of, if not the, greatest living directors. But it’s definitely not the type of output from him we generally expect. This deeply personal film about faith follows Andrew Garfield and (to a lesser extent) Adam Driver as two Portuguese priests who are sent to Japan during a time when the country was torturing and executing any Christians they found. The two search for their mentor (Liam Neeson) who has reportedly committed apostasy (look it up) but they just can’t believe it. Much hand-wringing and long, torturous deaths to follow. But is it…good? Well, we have differing reports on that. Listen to Richard, Chris, Beau, and Herman try to nail down what’s going on here.
