I quite liked Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. It’s not the type of film I’ll likely return to again and again like some of his other work, but I was surprised the strength of vision his Bible pic possessed. It was also interesting to note the reaction of a few über religious people with whom I was sharing the theater, getting upset because “that’s not the way it really happened.” I don’t think Aronofsky was attempting to rattle their feathers, I actually think he was trying to retrofit a popular story with elements that are significant to our current civilization as we teeter upon the edge of environmental disaster.
Myths and the narrative framework in which we view our lives are often necessary constructs to impart meaning and significance upon events. Darren Aronofsky gets that, so it’s a pleasure seeing him speak at some length regarding it. Hit the jump for a clip of him talking about the value if myth in storytelling.
