An alternately infuriating and exhilarating example of the Western as an art film.
April 21, 2015
A strangely satisfying and challenging piece of work, one that illustrates how elements of cinema, literature and theater can work in tandem, thanks to a recipe that is one part Poe and two parts Shakespeare.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Something deep and allegorical could be going on here, but Silent Tongue is at once so overwrought and desert-dull that you can't be bothered to investigate.

A bizarre, meandering and, finally, maddening mystical oater that will find few partisans.
February 9, 2006
Intriguing, then, but defiantly slow and awkward.
May 20, 2003
Eerie, inventive, [and] poetic.
May 12, 2001
A haunting tale of love, death and shame in the Old West.
January 1, 2000
A spellbinding mess of Greco-Roman, Irish and Native American myth, revisionist chic and theatrical tradition.
