Walking by the display case full of jars and bags of Roy’s Seasonings, three words on the signage stopped us in our tracks: “Strong and bold.” Hey, no one has time to waste on wimpy seasonings when you can climb higher on the flavor ladder, right?
“Noah” (PG-13, 131 minutes, Paramount): Anyone familiar with the 500-year-old man and his ark may need to check some of their most cherished visualizations of him at the door. No cozy two-by-two images of beatific giraffes grace this “Noah.” Like any good artist, Darren Aronofsky has avoided predictable, literalist retellings of beloved Sunday school stories by inserting new characters, bringing parenthetical figures to the fore and making one of history’s most enduring and universal myths his own. The result is a movie that is clearly deeply respectful of its source material but also at times startlingly revisionist, a go-for-broke throwback to Hollywood biblical epics of yore that combines grandeur and grace, as well as a generous dollop of goofy overstatement. Contains violence, disturbing images and brief suggestive content.
