Such a grand work on human tolerance and capacity is something everybody expects from Scorsese. He did his passion project about the lost priests of medieval Japan after 30 years. The movie has all the recurring themes of his previous works: Religion, Martyrdom, Christianity and nature of faith. But (There is a big but here!) despite its grandeur, Silence lacks great acting: I couldn’t believe Andrew Garfield as a missionary at all, nor could Liam Neeson suspend my disbelief any moment as broke prisoner. Although i have to confess Adam Driver is superb, and the Grand Guignol of the film is Yôsuke Kubozuka (Kichijiro).
P.S. I am more of a skeptic now than i was before.
