  • Film Review: 'Noah'

    Having made movies about obsessive characters looking for God -- or something like Him -- in the numerology of the Kabbalah ("Pi"), at the end of a heroin needle ("Requiem for a Dream"), and in the outer reaches of the galaxy ("The Fountain"), surely it was only a matter of time before Darren Aronofsky got to making one about a man with a direct line to the Creator. And so we have "Noah," in which the world's most famous shipwright becomes neither the Marvel-sized savior suggested by the posters nor the "environmentalist wacko" prophesied by some test-screening Cassandras, but rather a humble servant driven to the edge of madness in his effort to do the Lord's bidding. Counterintuitive, perhaps, but by no means sacrilegious, Aronofsky's uneven but undeniably bold, personal, visually extravagant take on the Old Testament tale will surely polarize critics and audiences while riding a high sea of curiosity to strong initial worldwide B.O. Only time -- and word of mouth -- will tell if it can stay the course for anywhere near 40 days and nights (and top "Black Swan'"s $329 million global cume).
