IT IS HERE AT LAST

 

 

 

Silence is Marty Scorsese's passion project he's been wanting to make for 27 years ever since he read in 1989 the book Silence written by Shūsaku Endō

 

It is set in the seventeenth century, it follows two young Portuguese Jesuit priests (Garfield, Driver) who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor (Neeson) and propagate Christianity. They shot for 8 months in Taiwan with a crew of 750 people for a budget of 48 million dollars. It opens on December 23rd as a limited release and in January wide. 

 

It is shot by Scorsese's new go-to cinematographer, ie the great Rodrigo Prieto who shot The Wolf Of Wall Street, and the pilot of Vinyl (HBO) with him. They shot on film for the day scenes and on the Alexa for night scenes, just as they did on Wolf. There's an article to come in the January issue of AC (which will be an issue featuring articles exclusively (except for Passengers shot by Prieto on the Alexa 65) of films shot on film).

That trailer was amazing, I've already watched it 3 times on end and counting.

 

Do we know anything yet about the choice to use anamorphic?

According to IMDB:

 

Arricam LT, Hawk V-Lite, V-Plus, V-Series, Zeiss Master Prime and Angenieux Optimo Lenses 
Arricam ST, Hawk V-Lite, V-Plus, V-Series, Zeiss Master Prime and Angenieux Optimo Lenses

 

Which would make sense considering Prieto & Scorsese used the Hawk anamorphic lenses, Master Primes & Angenieux on The Wolf Of Wall Street.

 

Looks fricking gorgeous.

I hope Marty doesn't disappoint with his "passion" project. I wasn't to enamored with his last passion project; "Passion of the Christ". At least his NEXT project will be another gangster movie. :)

Looks like Rodrigo Prieto want's an Oscar! Trailer flat-out looks amazing cinematography wise. Some shots make me wonder if he did a photochemical finish, even though IMDB says "DI". Also, someone had the audacity to put "Fujicolor" on IMDB as well, which makes me also wonder if some stuff was shot on Fuji. Some of those blue/green shots absolutely look like Fuji.

OHH so excited! I hope someone around me gets a 35mm print! :)

It was The Last Temptation Of Christ, Passion is Mel Gibson.

Plus, Gangs of New York was also a "passion project" and that turned out pretty well in my opinion.

Ohh I didn't know that. Gangs of New York is a very interesting movie technically as well, supposedly made without any substantial grading in post and 100% photochemical finish. Also Daniel Day Lewis is amazing of course, but story wise, not my cup o' tea. I should watch it again if a print shows up at my local 35mm only theater.
