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 offers his typically brilliant insights, while Matt (like usual) struggles to work out his feelings. Give it a listen.
