Scorsese has made a film of grandeur and great fervour

The Guardian

Martin Scorsese has been on a 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo's 1966 acclaimed novel to life and the film finally arrives at Tyneside Cinema.

Telling the story of two Jesuit Christian missionaries, played superbly by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver, who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) - at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden.

Having heard the review prior to seeing this film I was prepared to sit there for the long haul (2.40mins).For some reason I couldn't find empathy with any of the characters and felt quite drained from the experience. Maybe my lack of faith and religion isn't a good starting point. The best thought-provoking narrative is towards the end and perhaps a lesson for us all that dogma gets us nowhere.
