Andrew Garfield calls Scorsese's 'Silence' "meditative and brutal simultaneously"

The above image is a newly released still of Andrew Garfield in Martin Scorsese's "Silence." 

As we stand, there has been no trailer and no poster for the Scorsese epic. Nada. Panic mode? Of course not. Scorsese is still editing the damn thing. Let the master do his thing, but the hype is practically killing me. 

We do know that at least one person, safe for Marty, has seen the film. Andrew Garfield spoke to Fandango about it today and, to my knowledge, this is the first time he's been open to talking about it. His description only entices the intrigue even more. 

"It's meditative and brutal simultaneously, It's a very mysterious film and I can't quite put it into words. Every time me and Marty would try to get to the bottom of its themes and what the character is going through, we would wind up talking for two to three hours, and every time there would be five minutes of silence at the end because we had exhausted the conversation and had no answers, only more questions. Then he'd look at me and go, 'Okay kid, until next time...

"There is a lot of violence in it, but it's done in a very different way," he said. "It's a very specific type of brutality that was being done reluctantly, and yet with this Japanese eloquence -- it had a real seduction about it. It's really fascinating... but I don't want to say too much until you see it. You see it and then we'll talk about it."
