Hibbs, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Culture and dean of the Honors College at Baylor University, of Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” based on Shūsaku Endō’s 1966 novel, about 17th-century Jesuit missionaries to Japan. Hibbs writes the film as a “stark depiction of statism against religion.”
