Author(s): Darren Aronofsky
Following on the heels of his successful film Black Swan, celebrated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky turns his talent to the epic big-budget biblical tradition with his film Noah. Noah (Russell Crowe) attempts to tell his people to cease their mistreatment of the earth in order to be saved. No one listens to his warnings, and Noah and his family are cast out to fend for themselves in the wilderness. Noah approaches a race of giant six-armed angels known as the Watchers to rally them to his cause. The film touches on themes found throughout Aronofsky's work - dichotomy of life/death, inner turmoil, otherness - presented with the iconic Aronofsky singular and compelling aesthetic. This film book is an extension of Aronofsky's otherworldly sensibilities; it showcases art from the film and the director at work, and is a must-have for fans of Aronofsky and of cinema everywhere.
