WHAT THE HELL?!?
Dark Horizons is reporting that at the request of the National Religious Broadcasters Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming movie NOAHwill be accompanied by a disclaimer saying that artistic license has been taken.
You can find the story here.
I am so very angry. This is ridiculous. What next? Perhaps we need to be more explicit about movies ‘based on a true story’ and make them producers and directors be more exact about just how true most of them are (I can tell you that most of the ‘true’ movies of the past 12 months are VERY loose on fact and usually high on subjective storytelling).
The bible itself is interpretations and translations. There isn’t one definitive history and the moral and general message is the most important. Demanding a disclaimer about ‘truth’ is beyond absurd.
Heavily religious people do themselves no favours by highlighting differences and/or pushing one agenda. And give people who have moderate to normal beliefs a bad name.
