For us artists, private time is so important to refresh our creative minds. The daily split between running a business and trying to be a good dad doesn't allow for much free time, so the rare moments alone with my gorgeous wife are really important for me. Going out for dinner, watching a movie, having a great time. I love the movies especially, because it's entertainment, re-creation and also inspiration. Well, at least most of the times. Not so this weekend, watching "Noah" was a serious waste of time (and money).
NOAH: Aronofsky failed you!
I usually don't write any movie reviews, knowing that personal taste is such a fragile child and we all love different genres, directors and styles. In this case however I wish someone would have told me to give this film a miss.
Granted, some of the CGI elements in this film are cool, the hordes of animals arriving at the quite impressive looking ark look awesome, but that's where the film sadly ends. Director Aronofsky has shown his twisted, strange and dark view of the world in his previous movies "Black Swan" and "The Wrestler", but while it worked for such movies, turning Noah into a men hating (and possibly grand-daughter murdering) psycho doesn't quite work for me.
Of course, the movie is geared towards entertainment, and I guess you'd call it "creative freedom" to write a script that is quite far from original Biblical texts. Noah's three adult sons’ wives (as written in the bible) are replaced by one orphaned girl child in the film, and since Noah runs short on time to built the ark, some friendly "Lord of the Rings" kind of rock monsters do most of the heavy lifting/building for him. You could say, that's pushing creative freedom a bit, but hey, it's all in the name of entertainment. Unfortunately, even trying to be nice doesn't help, the film fails, not to mention that the constant stereotypical clichés in this film are seriously painful to watch.
Bottom line: Next time we'll go for dinner, a good glass of wine and a good conversation. Unless there's an amazing looking new movie out by then ;)

I'm a portrait photographer with a fashion taste, originally from Switzerland, now living and working in Queensland Australia.
Beside my work as a photographer, I teach photography workshops, write articles for a variety of publications, and produce the photography show 10 from the couch.In the past, I made a living as singer and actor (in musicals, bands, and on tv), however over the years my love for photography won the battle between "in front - or - behind the camera".
