Review: Silence, 2016, dir. Martin Scorsese

silence-poster-1

I ranked Silence in the #4 position on my BOFCA ballot this year, so naturally my review of the film has pretty high praise for it. You’ll hear a lot about the film in the coming weeks, much of which will, I’m certain, be bent around matters of representation; the questions raised in those conversations are worth asking, and I’m not sure that there’s any easy answer to them, or to the film’s conflicts with faith and spirituality. But that’s okay. There don’t have to be easy answers because we’re talking about difficult subjects, which is sort of the point of my review for Paste Magazine.
