Roughly Speaking
Film critic Christopher Llewellyn Reed says "Silence," about Jesuit missionaries to Japan in the early 17th Century, is Martin Scorsese's best work in years, a monumental film notable for the director's uncharacteristic restraint. "It's as if Scorsese had taken the title to heart," he says. Reed also reviews from the current cinema "A Monster Calls," Hidden Fences," "Patriots Day," and "20th Century Women."Christopher Llewellyn Reed is chair of the Film ---- Moving Image Department at Stevenson University. He is the lead film critic for Hammer to Nail, a website devoted to independent cinema, and he writes occasional reviews and pieces for Bmoreart and Film Festival Today.Links:
