Abstract

With an interest in Old Testament and Biblical Performance Criticism it should not be surprising that I am fascinated by cinematographic portrayals of Old Testament stories. In this essay I want to focus on just two recent offerings: Darren Aronofsky's Noah and Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings, both released in 2014. Though quite different from each other and on either end of the spectrum of critical reception, both movies approach well known narratives with fresh eyes, giving the viewer plenty of food for thought and reflection.
