Darren Aronofsky follows his award-winning Black Swan by turning to the Old Testament and reimagining the story of Noah’s ark. The result is an ambitious, odd movie. The front half combines elements of classic Bible epics, Lord of the Rings blockbusters, and Terrence Malick’s art films; in the more-pensive back half, Noah (Russell Crowe) ponders the full ramifications of God’s message to him. Concepts of faith, servitude, environmental preservation, and the responsibilities of dominion give viewers a lot to meditate on, even if these ideas are burdened by more-generic subplots of romance and revenge. As expected, Noah is often dreary, grim, and monochromatic, but Crowe wears the gravity well, and many thematic and visual aspects of the film linger long after the water recedes. Rated PG-13. 138 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española.
