| Original Score: 4/5
It builds to a tense and dramatic finale, but it takes far too long to get there.
| Original Score: 3/5
What could have been just another serial-killer whodunit becomes a complex study of grief, obsession and the persistence of guilt.
It's an unsatisfactory film that makes one interested in reading Jan Costin Wagner's source novel.
It's a wholly absorbing and surprisingly nuanced piece of work.
A smart and emotionally-driven crime drama.
The Silence is one of the most excruciating, paranoia-inducing films you'll see all year. Spread the word.
Terrifically acted by an ensemble cast, this film twists its knife relentlessly in the wound.
Occasional lapses in credibility notwithstanding, it's still tense and unsettling fare that treads delicately through difficult territory that involves the abuse of children.
