BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 01/06/2017

SILENCESILENCE

“Sometimes even the best of artists get lost inside of long-gestating passion projections.” - Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“It’s a harsh experience made with a gentle hand and shot through the eyes of a master director.” - Andrew Crump, Paste

“In classic Scorsese style, the movie wrestles with questions instead of answering them and these images follow you home into your dreams.” - Sean Burns, WBUR

“You need patience in order to endure SILENCE.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“SILENCE will probably feel like a reaffirmation of Christian faith to some and an impugnation of Christian arrogance to others.” – David Riedel, Salt Lake City Weekly

 

488219_186A MONSTER CALLS

“Deeply emotive and heart-achingly sad, A MONSTER CALLS is a tremendous triumph.” – Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks

“A MONSTER CALLS to be sure, but will anyone care to answer?” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
