Latest News > Twitter responds to Scorsese’s Silence
An early press screening of Scorsese’s adaption of Silence garnered plenty of praise on social media. Here are a few of the highlights:
I saw SILENCE twice today. First time, I was absorbed, impressed, moved. Second time, I was in tears. One of Scorsese's greatest films.

SILENCE is absolutely staggering. Deserves to be compared to the masterworks of Ingmar Bergman. A serious film about faith under fire.

Very few filmmakers ever find a way to compellingly grapple with spirituality and faith on film. Scorsese has done so consistently.

I will say this for SILENCE, Andrew Garfield is extraordinary in his articulation of not wanting to lose one's faith.

i found SILENCE urgent, moving, and momentous even as I kept wishing the padres would just go back home and call the proselytizing off

Silence finds Andrew Garfield at his best and Martin Scorsese at his most restrained, contemplative. A faith-based drama for the rest of us.
