Noah Torrent - In the end, the crux of Noah is the implicit discussion of servitude to God and man’s guilt in the reality around us, using the figure for both the punisher God. Do not wait inflamed discussions about the subject, but the construction of situations that can (and should) serve as compared to today. More than just a blockbuster interested in the show, Noah is a film that has nothing to say to an audience that wants to discuss. Watch with an open mind, without sticking to religious details, since this is not the real purpose of the story.
Noah looks at the human being, with its flaws and virtues, demonstrating perhaps unfounded belief that can be represented by the most mportant sentence of the feature film: “evil is in all of us.” Under various aspects.
the filmmaker tells the story of Noah Torrent, chosen by God
to save all the animals when the Creator “regrets” having given man dominion of the planet. The adult version of Noah Torrent, played by
Russell Crowe in the film arises collecting moss with a small blade like a careful biologist, while her nemesis, also a descendant of Adam,
Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone), reigns among men with talent for mining and with the eagerness of extractive.
Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel went to look in the Bible to figure Tubal-Cain - name associated in the scriptures to his vocation as a
blacksmith and gunsmith - to create this antagonism. Do not make a disaster movie only with a flood; every blockbuster needs heroes and
villains, and Tubal-Cain is Colonel Quaritch this specific Pandora. Similarly, when referring to the apocryphal Book of Enoch to take
advantage of the fallen angels of the Old Testament in the film and create the element of the Watchers, the filmmaker puts into action giant
stone that give a hint of fantasy The Lord of the Rings for its epic .
In “Genesis” the story of Noah Torrent has only three pages, and it seems very naive, anyway, hope that Hollywood promises to put up your
literary sense of spectacle fidelity. In Noah Torrent, the spectacular is always present, whether in new allocations of touring acts Aronofsky
(not yet resigned myself to not play “Age of Aquarius” at the end), that visually approximate Noah Torrent Source of Life, is on the scale of
things. The decision to build a huge ark actually on a set is felt; screen in the mission of Noah Torrent actually looks colossal.
The problem of the film is to locate and define the human element in the middle. The script tries to sharpen the story with the so-called
Intelligent Design - the scene where Noah Torrent recounts his family the origin of the world seems out of the TV series Cosmos and visibly
tries to reconcile creationism and evolution - but there is, at bottom, despite the efforts of the filmmakers, a drama with which the viewer
can relate. The dramatic arc of Noah Torrent is no Heart of Darkness; his madness is not gradual, which is basically just changes her
hairstyle, and he embraces fundamentalism from the third act without questioning the truth.
And that’s where that initial operation to counter a heroic figure and an archetypal villain (Noah Torrent and Tubal-Cain) is short-circuited.
Noah Torrent is not exactly a hero; he lives with harrowing consequences of their actions not because they made bad choices and learned from them - the classic hero’s journey - but because he followed the orders he received. When he understood, after the rain, that God will “ask” who is relentless in his mission, this is a fundamentalist reading that Noah Torrent is before the divine silence - and at that moment the
epic Noah Torrent might have asked (and your family undoubtedly asks) that he was, if not a humanist, at least one hero in transformation.
Darren Aronofsky was born Jewish - religion that differs from Christianity, among other things, by the provision in question the “leap of
faith” of Catholics - and today it says atheist. He is interested in religion with this external who grew nourishing doubt look, although the
moralism in some of his films leave not be a substitute to the religious dogmas. Are such inconstancy and this paradox - believe in free will
while imposing a moral to his characters - that make her interesting films, and Noah Torrent is no different.
