Silence – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s fair to say that Scorsese’s meditation on religion wont be to everyone’s taste.  It’s a long, slow, languishing movie that doesn’t rush to get anywhere in a hurry.  It also features Adam Driver who, still, does little for me on screen.  But stick with it and it’s a hell of a film which represents a labour of love for Scorsese that has taken decades to realise on screen.  Garfield is excellent and the film looks amazing.  Touch by rewarding.  

Best Bit: The direction, a master at work
