After my initial viewing of Martin Scorsese‘s Silence (which resulted in a 12.10 review), I decided that I probably didn’t need to see it a second time. One, it’s a bear to sit through and two, I think I got everything there is to get. And yet I’m seeing it again this evening at the DGA, and then joining an after-reception. If you ask around it’s no secret that Silence hasn’t caught on all that strongly with Academy and guild members, at least as far as year-end nominations are concerned. (Nor with the blogaroos.) But perhaps Issey Ogata‘s supporting performance, which I feel is easily among the most memorable and distinctive of 2016, will resonate. Here’s that HE advertorial on Ogata’s behalf that I posted last month.
