‘Noah’ and the Inscrutable God

noah

[The following contains SPOILERS for Darren Aronofsky's Noah. You can listen to our podcast review of Noah here.]

I once had a conversation with a friend of mine who has a Ph.D in Theology. We were discussing the nature of God, and I remember him saying to me, “I’m not sure if God exists. But if He does, He has a lot to answer for.”

“Like what?” I asked.

“Well, for one thing, He’s not a very good communicator.”

As a person who was raised in the Christian faith, one of the most challenging things for me to accept is God’s inscrutability. If there’s a being who can speak the universe into existence, surely He could make it crystal clear what his commands are? Surely, He could make clear to us the actual truth of His existence? Surely, He could stop untold amounts of suffering and killing by just dropping some truth on us every once in awhile? This tension – between God’s silence and His power – is a dynamic on full display in Noahout in theaters right now.

Making a Movie: How to Build a Kickstarter

Primary Instinct

Making a Movie” is a series of columns that chronicles our attempt to make, market, and distribute a film with Stephen Tobolowsky in 2014

Thanks to you guys, we met our Kickstarter goal in just 12 days. Our Kickstarter project now has just a few hours left to go (you can still back us by clicking here), but we are well into pre-production for our upcoming shoot.

Our Kickstarter project took me roughly six weeks of work to create. Looking back, there are a lot of things I would’ve done differently. After the jump, I share some learnings I’ve had throughout this process. I also had the chance to chat with Cesar Kuriyama and Matt Reynolds, both of whom had great success with their respective Kickstarter projects. Cesar successfully funded his 1SecondEveryday app and Matt got his film, The Great Chicken Wing Huntfinanced. A podcast recording of our chat can be found below.

enemy-ENEMY_DAY4-0054_rgb

What would you do if you discovered that there was another person in the world who looked exactly like you? How quickly would your world be torn from its moorings? What would you do? Would you ignore that person? Or would you obsessively track him/her down? Either way, you’d probably feel like something was gravely wrong with this universe.

Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy, which features Jake Gyllenhaal playing two versions of himself, provokes this hypothetical unease, drawing it out expertly until it’s almost unbearable. The film is out in theaters this weekend. After the jump, check out my video review of it.
