  10. 'Silence' falls short on portraying true religious feelingRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jan 13 | Christian Science Monitor

    Martin Scorsese's movies have often been about the turmoil of surviving, or fleeing from, a life of religious faith. I am thinking not only of films in which that struggle is made explicit, as in "The Last Temptation of Christ" or "Kundun," but also in such movies as "Mean Streets," with its commingling of gangsterism and Roman Catholic ritual, and "Taxi Driver," which is about the hellish wages of sin.

    Friday Jan 13 | MLive.com

    The director best known for hoods, gangsters and thugs turns his eyes to God in this epic tale of two Catholic priests who face persecution and death as they travel to Japan in the 17th century to spread their Christian faith. Martin Scorsese , the cinematic maestro whose iconic work includes Taxi Driver , Raging Bull , Goodfellas , Casino , Gangs of New York , The Departed and The Wolf of Wall Street , transforms the 1966 novel by Shusaku Endo into a sprawling historical drama about faith, centered on God's "silence" in the face of human suffering.

    Thursday Jan 12 | Houston Chronicle

    Having created a stellar body of work, Martin Scorsese has earned the right to put aside mainstream expectations from time to time. The director, a spiritual person who in his youth studied to be a priest, made biblical issues resonate through profane classics such as "Goodfellas," "Raging Bull," "Taxi Driver" and "The Wolf of Wall Street."
