5 comments on “Some of My Thoughts Regarding “Noah”

  1. Like ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ (’88) & ‘The Passion of the Christ’ (’04) we have fiction masquerading as sort of biblicism. Yawn.

    At least this latest isn’t as blasphemous as those flicks or the lately heinous ‘Son of God’ (’14). Diogo es no Jesus!

    Crowe’s ‘Noah’ CAN’T be as good as Carrell’s ‘Evan Almighty’ (’07)? 😉

  2. In reading it, I am struck that DM says of the director,

    The Bible is not his text.

    In his defense, I suppose, the film wasn’t advertised as such. Nowhere is it said that this movie is an adaptation of Genesis. It was never advertised as “The Bible’s Noah,” or “The Biblical Story of Noah.”

    And, Darren Aronofsky has produced a retelling of the Noah story without reference to the Bible at all. This was not, as he claimed, just a storied tradition of run-of-the-mill Jewish “Midrash.” This was a thoroughly pagan retelling of the Noah story direct from Kabbalist and Gnostic sources.

    So? Take it as such. It’s skubulon marketed as semi-skubulon. OK, so it’s “Aronofsky’s World History From ‘Avatar’ Adam to Gnostic Gnoah”? So what?

    It’s no worse than the aforementioned fictionalized tales about some ‘jesus’ from Scorcese or Gibson.

    But Crowe’s (or Steve Carrell’s) Noah is better than any depiction of a so-called Son of God, the second person of the Trinity.

    That’s why “Son of God” is more blasphemous and dangerous than the silly & phony ‘christ’ flicks, and much worse than any “Noah.”

    If Mattson’s going after the putatively Christian twits who’ve recommended “Noah,” fine. I hope he aims his keypad at the “Son of God” sellers, more however. They are much more sinister.

    Thank you.
