Featured Film:

Silence at the Meridian and the Lincoln Square

Every year it seems there’s one movie that doesn’t screen in time to make it onto end of the year lists, but that if it had, would have done quite well. This year, it’s Martin Scorsese’s Silence, which would surely have placed high in our end-of-the-year poll had it played here in time. As it is, it’s eligible for our 2017 poll, but will probably be forgotten by then. But regardless, it’s one of the best films of 2016, the story of Portuguese Jesuits attempting to evade persecution in 17th Century Japan, it’s at once remarkably nuanced in its exploration of faith and colonialism while remaining resolutely materialist and physical. The worthy final piece of Scorsese’s great trilogy of explicitly religious films, alongside The Last Temptation of Christ and Kundun.
