Silence: A Flawed, but Beautiful Look at Faith Under Fire [Review]

Silence: A Flawed, but Beautiful Look at Faith Under Fire [Review]

Given director Martin Scorsese’s film background, which mostly consists of stories centered around crime and gang violence, it comes as a surprise that Silence has been his passion project for 30 years. After numerous legal battles over the years, Scorsese was finally able to make Silence happen. At two hours and 40 minutes, however, Silence is a lot to digest. And while the journey itself is long and tiresome at times, it’s message, told with a great script spoken by an exceptional ensemble cast, makes it feel significant. Though sometimes brutal, Silence paints a beautiful picture of a clash between culture and religion, where characters question the sacrifices they are willing make to keep their faith and driven to the point of expulsion.

Hacksaw Ridge: Bar None, the Best War Drama in Recent Memory [Review]

The true story of the heroics of Pfc. Desmond Doss is nothing short of incredible, unreal, and every other superlative you can come up with. Director Mel Gibson (Braveheart) admirably tells Doss’s story in Hacksaw Ridge, a powerful war drama steeped in grace from its main character and horror from its battlefield sequences. Hacksaw Ridge does not shy away from its unwavering principles in a time where the world was tearing itself apart. While it might feel clichéd at times, the cast of Hacksaw Ridge elevates those moments and give balance to a war drama that doesn’t need to rely solely on war violence to drive the narrative. War dramas are a dime a dozen, but Hacksaw Ridge is without a doubt the best war drama in recent memory and the first movie of the fall that could (and should) generate some Oscar buzz.
