Episode 256 - Silence

Shh! No talking during the service!  What's that?  We're not in church?  Somebody tell Marty Scorsese, because this film is one of the most reverent depiction of piety in all of cinema.  The heroes of this brutal film are the priests, but you needn't be religious to be captivated by their spirit.  Andrew and Phil both liked 'Silence' but Phil lamented that it could have been made with a more appropriate (read: less whitewashed) cast.  At one point, Gael Garcia Bernal was attached for the Andrew Garfield role.  The star of 'Hacksaw Ridge' performs admirably in this difficult role, but his overwhelming whiteness and unconvincing accent prevent a total immersion into the world of the film.  However, the overall impact is strong and results in one of the most memorable movies of the year.
