Steven Greydanus on the First Must-See Movie of 2007

Steven D. Greydanus at Decent Films, one of my favorite film critics, has me scrambling to make plans to see a quiet movie that just might creep past moviegoers unnoticed.

His review of Into Great Silence sets it apart for me as the first must-see of 2007.

Its achievement virtually defies commentary; a critic has only words with which to illuminate a film, but how can what is wrought in silence be illumined by words?

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has relaunched a bigger, better version of this blog at LookingCloser.org. The new Looking Closer doesn't have any of the trashy click-bait advertisements that you're probably seeing all over this Patheos page. So give yourself a break.

    This was one of the really great films I saw at last year’s Seattle Intl Film Fest. But be prepared to let go of any of your typical viewer demands; this film won’t entertain you at all. That’s not what it’s about. (My review was e-published in the second issue of Rex Magazine.)
