The Hollywood Reporter writes that the Vatican Newspaper “Avvenire” blasted Russell Crowe’s “Noah” as a “lost opportunity” that presented “Noah without God” and turned the Genesis story into something “ecologically, and vaguely new age, transforming the Biblical tale into a missed chance.”
In the run-up to the film’s release, Crowe and director Aronofsky publicly pressured Pope Francis for a meeting and endorsement of the film. Other than an audience with the Pope that every member of the public is allowed to attend, that never happened.
