There is silence no more. After screening for hundreds of priests at the Vatican yesterday, the floodgates for reactions to Martin Scorsese‘s Silence have now opened. While an official review embargo is still set for later this month, select critics in New York and Los Angeles had the chance to see the director’s long-gestating adaptation of Shūsaku Endō‘s novel and, for the most part, it sounds like it was worth the wait. Ahead of our review, check out the reactions below (and we’ll add more as they arrive) along with a link to the full score, now available to stream.

We also have a trailer for BFI’s upcoming Scorsese retrospective, which one can see below.

Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) – at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden. The celebrated director’s 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo’s 1966 acclaimed novel to life will be in theaters this December.


Silence will begin its release on December 23 before expanding in January.
