Accettata l'inspiegabile anglofonia dei portoghesi, mi sono reso conto che sarebbe potuto essere uno di quei film belli, ma belli davvero, se non fosse stato per la necessità di Scorsese di rendere tutto più digeribile rispetto al capolavoro originale di Shinoda. Vanno ringraziati il soggetto giapponese originale e la ricca fotografia di Prieto per la valutazione finale positiva. Una grossa occasione non sfruttata.
Scorsese's most spiritual film--a more mature and serious Scorsese than the absurd DiCaprio collaborations (The Departed and Wolf of Wall St. are his most overblown and worst movies.) There are moments in this story which are moving, however, the entire experience leans too heavily on austerity and theological debates. Mean Streets is still Martin's best because it embraces both the sacred and the sordid.
Grand in both of it scope and themes, Scorsese's SILENCE is an amazing showcase of the director ability to create an epic film. But, as any passion project, it shows the problems of Scorsese love for the subject: it lacks focus and it don't do justice for its great themes. It's a bumpy, pretty ride.
A masterwork, despite itself. I'm, heretically, not too fond of Scorsese but his script here is powerful enough to make him go as austere as he can. It just melded itself into my mind. A story of not just religion but conviction of any ideology. A glorious reaction to the postmodernism of our time.
In foregoing his usual attention to technical cleanliness, Scorsese - now taking risks - finally blossoms. The construction serves the emotions of the protagonist over the plot. Expressionistic sound design - from high noise floors to total silence - and the repetitive and elongated nature of the structure pay off emotionally. It's all brought together by masterful visuals channeling classic Japanese cinema.
Una película que plantea las exigencias, sacrificios, inquietudes y contradicciones inherentes a la fé. El desenlace se siente agotado y flojo. Sin embargo se trata de un título que se merecía una mejor recepción por su madurez y sobriedad. Notable la fotografía de Rodrigo Prieto. Las secuencias de torturas están rodadas magistralmente.
terribly boring but visually stunning. but my main concern is; why do people still make content based on religion? petition to forget this all ever happened instead of glorifying it. this is why the aliens want nothing to do with us - because we kill each other over different imaginary friends and create art about it. AND GARFIELD HAS THE WORST PORTUGUESE ACCENT IN HISTORY
So when a film tells more of the culture aspect and the idea it brings with it, has it fulfilled its role as a film? This is the question I put forward in this text. The idea behind the film is quite new and fresh, dealing with spirituality from a cultural point of view, which is quite good, but is that enough. Wonderful cinematography and great acting, but there's something missing to wow us. Is the idea enough?
