I saw the trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus earlier, and once again, if you didn’t tell me it was a Ridley Scott film, I might have just rolled my eyes and dismissed it. Sorry to say, but I haven’t been a fan of the man’s work for a decade now, and I’m not sure his trip to the Bible will redeem him in my eyes.
That said, there are some great Bible movies to be found, as evidenced by Darren Aronofsky’s recent retelling of Noah. I went into the film confused about why he’d taken on the project, and with rather low expectations, but it kind of blew me away.
This is one such scene that represents Aronofsky’s take on the old story, and perhaps it will make you interested enough to see the final product. Watch “Creation” above.
