Martin Scorsese’s modern masterpiece was almost all I had hoped it would be. Silence is the religious drama about Christian missionaries in Japan in the 1600’s. they are violently tortured until they renounce their faith. Silence is one of the most beautiful shot and most gorgeous films I saw all year. The film is a bit long, but not at the end. The ending had some editing problems and he began telling and not showing. The acting from the three leads , Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, and Liam Nieson all kill in their performances and casting. The rest of the cast which I was not aware of all do a fantastic job and I was lost in a cinematic world of Martin Scorsese. The original cut was near four hours and Paramount would not release that cut. All in all I loved this movie, but it may not be for all movie viewers, but for anyone wanting to see the master at work on a true passion price of cinema. 4/5
Oliver Stone’s latest political drama is centered around whistle blower Edward Snowden. Snowden,staring Joesph Gordon Levit is one of Stone’s best in years. JGL is the real selling point of the film. He kills his performance of the the awkaward Snowden. Shaylene Woodley plays Snowden’s girlfriend and does a great job as well. Snowden isn’t flashy but works well for a toned down Stone biopic. 3.5/5
Hidden Figures is a film that does everything a film needs to do right, except innovate or revolutionize film. These are not bad or even nessasary with these type of films. Hidden Figures cast and great moments hold up this film. I love films where I learn something new or see a story I had never heard, and Hidden Figures did just that ! Solid film go check it out if you have a chance.
