One of the last anticipated films to come out this year is Martin Scorsese's long-awaited Silence, a film he's been trying to get made for over twenty-five years, believe it or not. The cinematography in this looks stunning, but the first reaction I had was to giggle at whatever accents Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield are attempting to pull off here. Sometimes that can really be distracting- why can't Scorsese just do these movies the way he did Last Temptation of Christ, where everyone just spoke as is and we simply have to accept the setting regardless? Anyway, apart from that this looks good (maybe a bit punishing, ala The Revenant), and I hear that Liam Neeson may be the big Oscar play for acting in the movie- he's probably overdue for some serious awards attention, don't you think? Silence is coming out in limited release in late December.
