Russell Crowe is Noah

Yesterday was another day with nothing planned, so I went to the cinema to see "NOAH".

I enjoyed it. Reasonable acting, always good to see Ray Winstone and Ms Watson seems to be coming along well, good production, good use of CGI, not sure about the costume work, but £4.50 well spent, included a free coffee and biscuit (Thursday afternoon package for silver screeners). Creation myths are great stories and so, if big enough, make great cinema.

  1. I just finished a paper on this for grad school - I thought it was an interesting film, very cannily made, respectful enough of the Jewish Midrash and Christian traditions around the story, and a very clever transposing of the story to today's environmental issues. Lots for everyone. It's not every day you see a studio spend so much money on a bible story.
