Noah, or the guiding voice within


Darren Aronofsky’s rendition of the biblical saga, Noah, which I can highly recommend, explores the loss of the guiding voice within, the one that people attribute to God. Cut off from that creative life force, Noah clings to what he believes to be right. And in that unbending adherence to a rigid set of ideas he progressively becomes a traitor to life and the inevitable tragedy ensues. Ideas or principals when they are no longer anchored in life fuel hatred and destruction. The film ultimately has love, family and little children triumph. But that apparent resolution must surely be seen as sidestepping the challenge of connecting to our inner voice and, beyond that, the quest for spiritual connectedness.
