Martin Scorsese is one of the best filmmakers who ever lived, and has made some of the best films of all time, including Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas. The 1966 historical religious novel Silence gripped Scorsese and remained an obsession for a few decades, as the director tried repeatedly to bring the [...]
