Silence(directed by Martin Scorsese) is a Masterpiece

This is a thoughtful film on many levels, a tale told without hammering home any single point of view. While Scorsese's heart is clearly with the Catholic priests and the persecuted faithful, he allows the story to unfurl at its own manner and pace, disclosing the tragic follies as well as the noble themes of the doomed mission. The final part probes into the paradox of Christianity, how one is nearest to God in failure than in success.

Rating: 5/5
