I wanted to see Silence on the big screen. I also didn’t want to. The Scorsese films I’ve seen have been more in the category of ultra-violent, and filled with characters who little valued human life.
I was glad to have spent the time watching this one. Decades in the making, it tells a story of faith, and what to do when your faith is tested that forces the viewer to think carefully about their own experience. Its lack of soundtrack made me more aware of the sounds around me even days after watching.
