Silence

Martin Scorsese is probably my favourite director. I've loved a lot of his films, but Silence was a real disappointment. I appreciate the craftsmanship, it's a beautiful looking film. The cinematography is amazing. But this was about as exciting as watching paint dry. It's 161 minutes long and extremely slow paced and repetitive. There's a scene where Andrew Garfield looks into a puddle of water and sees the face of Jesus and it looked terrible. I really found Silence hard to sit through and wouldn't recommend it even if you're a Scorsese fan. Grade: C
