As boring as it eventually was, maybe you shouldn't have made it. I've seen better movies by your ideas and direction but gosh this is just beyond boring. And the fact that you had rave reviews over this movie makes me wonder... Are the reviews great because you Scorcese or what? In my mind, I'd hoped you spent 20 years with something fantastic instead of 2 catholic priests going to Japan to find another ex-catholic priest. That idea, had I even thought of it, would have taken anyone 5 minutes.
