Shusaku Endo’s Silence is the most harrowing novel I’ve ever read (yes, even harsher than The Road), and one of the most moving and profound.

I’ve been reading about Martin Scorsese’s plans to make a film version for several years now, trying to imagine how anyone could translate that riveting nightmare of a story to the big screen.

Well, if he’s going to do it, he certainly moving in the right direction. This news is going to make it hard for me to think about anything else for a while….

Start polishing the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor Oscars for 2010. Engrave the names Daniel Day-Lewis and Benicio Del Toro.

Thanks to Peter Chattaway for the link.
