What a waste -- not just of forests, habitat, energy, air, water, health, and our climate. What a waste of human talent. Watching all this, I found myself contemplating how much could be achieved if all of this effort, ingenuity, and engineering prowess were instead directed toward developing clean power?

Sometimes evangelical Christians make movies. And usually they are horrible. The themes are poorly executed. Instead of life imitated in inspiring ways through the medium of film, a sermon is smugly preached.

The magnificent story of Noah appeared in the Torah first and then entered the Bible, and that it is central to the Quran. It doesn't belong to one religious group, but to all human beings.

Unless you are the senior Senator from Oklahoma, work in Exon's PR department or have a brother named Charles Koch, the evidence of carbon-based climate damage is excruciatingly obvious, scientifically proven, and, like Easter bunnies in heat, mounting rapidly.

If you march into a theater to see Noah and expect a pleasant Bible story for the whole family, you obviously don't realize how deadly serious Darren Aronofsky takes this fable.

Hijacking the Ark: Do Creationists Own the "Noah" Story?

As you can see, the story of Noah was already borrowed and given a new purpose by Hebrew scribes. It has been retold countless times, and the theme is now being used by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky to tell his own idiosyncratic tale of environmental retribution and redemption.

This mix of visionary filmmaking and insightful drama, courtesy of Aronofsky's iconoclastic instincts, takes mainstream film to places where most big-budget releases fear to tread.

One thing you can't say about Noah, the big budget reimagining of the biblical flood fable (starring Russell Crowe as the titular boat builder) is that it lacks in ambition.

It could have been a disaster. An implausible story from a book of often improbable events written 2,000 years ago. Making a plausible, entertaining movie about the story seems challenging even for Hollywood.
