NOTE: The graphic novel, written by Darren Aronofsky himself, is chock full of PoCs, with Noah being the only character that could be considered white.

“From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise.”

“You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, “Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.” Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, “Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?” That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane.”

lol whut?
O.K. so, you tell us if his reasoning makes any sense, or if he's scrambling to find an excuse.

I ventured into the comments long enough to post about the graphic novel, which doesn't seem to have the same problem with PoCs, but I mostly avoided them. I figured that was a very dangerous place to be.....

lol Racist Brenda. ;)

Can't stand the heat? Get off of social media. No seriously, if you don't want to be spoiled, then don't hang out in places where people are discussing stuff as it happens. Just because you aren't caught up, doesn't mean we must cater to you. And yes I'm aware that things air at different times. Feel free to hop on during your time. Otherwise, I'm sure there is nothing on Twitter that you need to worry about elsewise.

That said, most people I chat with are pretty good about not overtly spoiling, and tagging spoilers appropriately, (Well, everyone except +Tim Holmes !! <SOB>).

Yes, there are rules, and most nice people obey them. But The people who bitch because you are staring at Twitter while both viewers AND actors and producers and writers and channels are livetweeting shows? Your problem. Filter ur feeds.

This is How I Roll

This did illicit such a level of mirth that whilst such enrobed it was I inspired to share. I think this is the only way to Friday night.

I won't lie: I'm much more interested in 'illicit levels of mirth' than the gif itself .... :-)
