What the Critics say

Todd McCarthy A searching exploration of religious beliefs.
Paul Boekkooi Onthutsende, historiese en spirituele reis.
Jim Judy Overall, I found Silence interesting, but it’s often slow and repetitive, and another trip (or two or three) through the editing process could have made this a much tighter and likely more effective offering.
Tomatometer Silence ends Martin Scorsese’s decades-long creative quest with a thoughtful, emotionally resonant look at spirituality and human nature that stands among the director’s finest works.
Staff evaluation Scorsese’s difficult, gory, but magnificent religious epic.
