Silence (2016) ***1/2

Scorsese channels Kurosawa and Malick and makes a divisive and challenging companion piece to his previous THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST. Visually stunning and impeccably assembled, but also heavy handed and frustrating. I was engulfed by this film even when I wasn't 100% connecting. Regardless of star rating or nitpicks, it's still an incredible piece of art.
