Darren Aronofsky is making a movie about the patriarch Noah, and some film people are talking about the script they have read, which may or may not reflect the final story. Peter Chattaway offers some thoughts and a bit of criticism of what Brian Godawa said about it. There’s no blood on the ice here, just a little back-and-forth.
The biggest issue plebeians like us will notice is the heavy environmentalism. In this story, original sin led to violence which led to the greatest of all evils: environmental waste. From what Chattaway can tell, the story may be thought-provoking, if we can hold our noses through the eco-propaganda. I wonder if the world will be a rainforest paradise after the flood washes through. (via Jeffrey Overstreet)
