I don’t subscribe to any religion except that of Pure, unfiltered Camp, and this movie is going to send me wailing and sobbing into the aisle of my local movie theatre, genuflecting to the Church de la Aronofsky. “Who came up with the idea for this movie?” Su asked, after watching the trailer. “A GENIUS, that’s who!” I replied, eyes wide with crazed wonder. Though a heathen through and through, I love Bible movies – Jesus Christ Superstar and The Ten Commandments especially. In fact, any sort of myth-based epic makes me tremendously happy. When I was a kid, I would watch Harry Hamlin in Clash of the Titans and just let it fill me with sweet sweet joy. Next year Christian Bale is going to be starring in the film Exodus as Moses. MOSES, you guys! I’m already imagining the blissful waves of delight that will course through me as I watch a 2014 version of Moses and Rhamses kiss fighting. Let’s not get too worked up thinking about Batman as Moses and first focus on Jor-El as Noah. The film stars our favourite Gladiator as Noah, of Arky Arky fame, Aronofsky alum and previous Crowe co-star Jennifer Connelly, looking less like Jennifer Connelly in a Biblical period film and more like Jennifer Connelly at a Halloween party, Perks of Being a Wallflower stars Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, accepting the love the Heavenly Father thinks they deserve, and, possibly best of all, Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah! WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE? Through Aronofsky’s talent at combining the strange with the exciting while exploring human angst, the film has envisioned the Bible story as a blockbustery apocalypse epic mixed with a deep character study about a man suffering visions of the world’s end. I get it, the Noah story is pretty cool: build a big ol boat; gather up two of everything; ignore the haters because God talks to you direct. I have no doubt that Crowe will portray Noah as a determined, devout, Australian hero; he always does. This movie has flop written all over it, while simultaneously GIVE IT ALL THE AWARDS spray painted on the rustic Nick Offerman’esque boat. I don’t know which way it’s going to travel this award season, but I know it has a direct line into my camp-loving heart, because when people take ridiculous things seriously it makes me happy, and that’s what Bible stories are all about.
