This movie is quite amazing. I saw it a while ago, but it resonates today.
I don’t have access to this movie now, but if I recollect correctly the guy who is imprisoned for murdering says this “Please talk to me, say one word”, “please ask him to talk to me”. This is a kind of torture punishment where the person is physically not harmed but it probably is one of the worst kind of torture and the impact of this is not comparable to any other kind of torture.
It happens, people don’t look at you for years, months or days, even living under the same roof. The silence causes a monologue in the mind which is very hard to break out off. It is addictive too and it engulfs your thoughts, your personality, your motivation, you desire to be anything even if being insignificant was the purpose.
Solitary confinement happens in everyday life. The silence that creeps into peoples lives either by choice or just something that was not regulated. But it does become the primary source of pain if silence decides to build a house in your home.
