Silent River is unapologetic with its "show, not tell" presentation that'd it make David Lynch blush. This is a good thing. This film doesn't hold your hand, and instead immediately thrusts you into Elliot's topsy-turvy world. From the very beginning and until the very end, Silent River captivates you with its stunning cinematography, superb acting, and cerebral story. If you're looking to take a trip to the brain, watch this film!

Hauntingly Good Cinema
If you love David Lynch, you'll get drawn into this films gravity well. Between the cinematography, the score and the wonderful performances, there's plenty to enjoy here. And you'll see something new each time you see it.

Visually stunning film
Definitely worth watching not only for its gorgeous cinematography but also for the brilliant acting. It's a film that keeps the viewer constantly wondering (in a good way) and mentally stimulated with its clever use of different film genres amidst themes of love, betrayal, and forgiveness. Some parts seem a bit disjointed but it doesn't detract from the ethereal beauty and power of the film. It's been a few days since I watched the film and I catch myself randomly thinking about some of the scenes. Obviously, it's a sign that I need to go back and watch it again. I recommend going to seeing Silent River with friends since it'll undoubtedly trigger a hearty discussion afterwards with many different takeaways.
