The StoryMen discuss the controversial new Darren Aronofsky film NOAH. To help us sort out this complicated fim, we welcome Rabbi Eliyahu Fink and Reel World Theology podcast host Mikey Fissel. We share our takes on the film, discuss the Jewish roots of Aronofsky’s story, and discuss to what degree the film is Gnostic.
