Director: Darren Aronofsky
Release date: 4 April 2014 (UK)
“No matter what you’re expecting, I’m sure this movie is gonna surprise you,” said Russell just seconds before Noah came on screen in Cineworld Cardiff at the Welsh premiere of Noah on March 29th. I really couldn’t put it better myself.
He wasn’t lying. Noah is a dark, surprising, visually stunning movie that will make you gasp more than once. After the initial reaction of judging it a bit weird (you’ll see what I mean), I started looking at it as a grim storybook come to life and it was all fine and well. That’s what the Bible really is to me, after all.
Besides, if I could consider a movie directed by Aronofsky as easy entertainment, I’d be disappointed.
A few favourite things: The casting, the animations, the forest bit.
