After Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan became the surprise $330m hit of 2010, he had enough clout to embark on as ambitious a project as he could dream of. That dream, his biblical interpretation Noah, turned out to be the closest thing to an ‘event movie’ 2014 has seen yet. It is one of those rare instances at the cinema where you can’t help but say to yourself: “If this isn’t perfect I don’t know what is.”
Davis Rivera is the recipient of the Marguerite & Otis Walter Scholarship for Excellence in Art History, founded the UArts Literary Society, recently completed a book on the last American auteur, and is working on two films to be released this spring. He lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
