Box Office via Wikipedia
Silence grossed $7.1 million in the United States and Canada and $8.9 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $16 million, against a production budget of $40 million.

In North America, the film had its expansion alongside the openings of Monster Trucks, The Bye Bye Man, and Sleepless, as well as the wide expansions of Live by Night and Patriots Day, and was expected to gross $4–6 million from 747 theaters in its four-day MLK opening weekend. It ended up debuting to $1.9 million (a four-day total of $2.3 million), finishing 15th at the box office. Deadline.com attributed the film’s low opening to its 161-minute runtime and lack of major award nominations to create buzz.

Similarly, The Hollywood Reporter noted that, unlike some of the other films released, Silence was playing in fewer cinemas and had been released at a time when the marketplace had “too many adult dramas” and “a lack of interest in the subject matter”.

Critical Response via Wikipedia
On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 85% based on 220 reviews, and an average rating of 7.6/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Silence ends Martin Scorsese’s decades-long creative quest with a thoughtful, emotionally resonant look at spirituality and human nature that stands among the director’s finest works.” On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 79 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.

Last week we celebrated 40 years of ‘Taxi Driver’ and thought we would find out what’s the best De Niro & Scorsese film. We received 62 votes and the stand out winner at 39% was Goodfellas from 1990, followed by Taxi Driver that only just managed to snatch second place from Casino with 24% and forth place went to Raging Bull. What we can tell by this poll is that not enough people have watched the King of Comedy, so put down what you are doing now and see De Niro, Scorsese and Jerry Lewis as you have never seen them before.

'The greatest thing to ever exist. Better than sliced bread. The Bee's knees. The gold standard. Flawless. Masterful. Iconic. Taxi Driver floors me every time I watch it. Every shot is perfection, every line of dialogue is simultaneously heartbreaking and illuminating, Travis Bickle is one of the finest characters ever written and De Niro embodies him brilliantly, every note of Bernard Herrmann's score makes my heart swell; all of it soothes the soul in a very personal and profound way.' – To read the full ★★★★★ review by SilentDawn on Letterboxd click on the poster above
