No Perfect Churches

May 27, 2019

There is no perfect congregation.

Silence

January 6, 2017

Martin Scorsese has a higher purpose in making films. He is not merely trying to entertain or provide a couple of hours of escapism. He wants the viewer to wrestle with difficult questions. Silence is a mixture of beautiful filmmaking and a complex and challenging story that will linger with you long after the final […]
