In this episode, we discuss Martin Scorsese’s new film Silence, which is an adaptation of Shūsaku Endo’s book of the same name. Film critic Brett McCracken makes his Mere Fidelity debut; he reviewed the film here, and can be followed on Twitter here. Alastair (as usual) offers his typically brilliant insights, while Matt (as usual) struggles to work out his feelings (and initially misidentifies the filmmaker). Give it a listen.
Special thanks to Timothy Motte for his sound editing work.
