Dir. Martin Scorsese. 2016, 161 mins, DCP. With Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano, Ciarán Hinds, Issei Ogata. Martin Scorsese’s latest film is an adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s celebrated novel about Christian missionaries in seventeenth-century Japan. An intense drama about faith and doubt, Silence is one of the director’s great passion projects; he first read the novel in 1989 and Jay Cocks wrote the first draft of the screenplay in 1992.
