THROWBACK: Requiem for a Dream (2000)

NOTE: I had this review published in Teen Ink back in March 2013. Read the original article here.

Throughout my school career, my health teachers have always told my fellow classmates and me “Don’t do drugs kiddos, they’re bad for you because they’ll ruin your life!” without any proper justification, and proper justification I did not get… until I watched Darren Aronofsky’s “Requiem for a Dream”. 613 more words

Movie Review

"Is this the end of everything?" Noah - review.

Driven by a stout performance from Russell Crowe as the protector of creation, Noah’s effective mix of Old Testament brutality and stunning modern day visuals make Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic a slightly better-than-average affair. 477 more words

Review: Noah

Raw, punishing and bold; Darren Aronofsky‘s biblical drama is a ruthless interpretation differing drastically from the bedtime stories we’ve been told.

Opening with stark and violent images symbolising the downfall of man, Aronofsky has managed to intertwine religious conviction with bloody violence and succeeds in transferring the simplistic story of Noah and the Ark into a huge cinematic experience. 536 more words

Noah

By Curtis McWaters

Noah is a dark, sin filled vision of the Old Testament that brings to life images of the bible. The film manages to throw up some moments of dispute, bringing up comments such as, “I don’t remember that in the bible”. 395 more words

On the Movie 'Noah' -- Part One: 'Is That In the Bible?'

I went to see “Noah” with low expectations, and for reasons that had nothing to do with religion.

I find that many of today’s movies set in ancient times do not take themselves seriously enough; they seem more concerned with catering to franchises and to viewers with short attention spans than with telling stories. 578 more words

'Noah' co-screenwriter defends lack of blacks in Biblical film

The hit melodrama Noah has been subject to widespread criticism for its departures from Biblical text but also for its lack of racial diversity.

Recently, Ari Handel, a co-screenwriter of the film addressed the latter complaint about the Darren Aronofsky film. 163 more words
