Review of Silence (2016)

*We play this at my theater so I have the chance to go see it.
*The cast is an interesting one except for Ciaran Hinds who I just can't stand lol.
*This is a Martin Scorsese film so I expect good things to happen.
*I have heard some people don't like it though, but then again people these days want constant action.
*This is co-written by Jay Cocks who also wrote on Gangs of New York with Scorsese.
*Apparently Japan had adapted the book this is based on in 1971 which I never knew until now.
*Anyways let's see if this is a winner or not.

*The story is very interesting itself.
*The acting was quite excellent as well.
*You can tell that this was more about telling the story than just making it insane to entertain the easily distracted.

*It feels a bit drawn out.
*To be honest it can get boring at times as well.

It is a very interesting look at the history of Christianity and Japan. The acting, story, and directing are all really well done. It's a bit long and drawn out, but it is a story that I think people should look at.
