Scorsese delivers one again. One of the best of 2016.

Spoilers:

I've been getting into Scorsese a lot in recent times Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Shutter Island are all in my top 30 favourite films and I think The Departed is just outside my top 50! I missed this film when it was released a few months ago but I preordered the Blu Ray and watched it tonight. I was expecting the next big masterpiece to challenge Inception and Shutter Island for the best movie of the decade and needless to say I was disappointed. It's not bad, just not another masterful work by Scorsese.

It's one of Scorsese's best looking and shot movies ever, however! The use of colour, camerawork, set design and locations is used superbly.

The first hour is incredibly dull. I liked how the Japanese Christians were in hiding and had to practice their faith in secrecy but there just wasn't a lot going on. It moved pretty slow, overall. Also, the editing and sound design wasn't great. In fact, at times shots and sounds was constructed together and it feels bizarre.

After that, it gets really good! It turns into a great character piece about a man who is lost and going through a crisis. He doesn't know his place in the world, he's faith is always being tested and he psychologically changes. What makes me even more disappointed is that the whole film wasn't a character piece like the final 90 minutes!

Overall, Silence is a mixture of depth and dullness. I'm thinking that one day I will go back to it and my thoughts will change and I will see it as another Scorsese masterpiece.

Out of the 9 Scorsese fans I've seen, this one will be my 8th favourite above Casino.
