    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    86/100

    As adept and enthralling as I expected from one of my few unseen Kubrick's. I have nothing new or provocative to add to that particular discussion, but one thing I found noteworthy was the hearsay regarding Kubrick's aversion to the presence of narration. The emotionless precision of it clashing with the frankly hilarious way the heist goes awry is a stunning exhibition of our innate ego and greed.

    Noah

    ★★★★

    The arresting fashion in which Darren Aronofsky injects profundity into a predominantly superficial genre may be the most impressive accomplishment of the resplendent and epic Noah. Aronofsky, a filmmaker with the incessant purpose to innovate and redefine, puts forth one of his most divergent motion pictures but simultaneously one of his most mainstream with this re-imagining of Noah's ark. A true blockbuster on the surface, the sweeping temperament of Noah is uncommonly matched with intelligence and a bonafide, gravitating narrative…
