All the animals are sedated and are all seen lying down. An elephant normally only sleeps for about four hours a day. If an elephant were to lie on its side for more than a day (for example) the weight of its internal organs would cause them to rupture and fail. See more »

Should've been called 'Darren' instead. A vanity project and a greenie agenda piece.
This film is a visual manifestation of Aronofsky's personal wet dream of a society: a place in which industrialization is vanquished, flora and fauna are elevated above people, and God is loathsome and disregarded.
It's unfortunate that the director chose to hijack one of the more noble of the patriarchs in the Old Testament as a vehicle for espousing a world view that is purely his own. Attempting to elevate your personal beliefs to the level of Scripture by essentially rewriting the Bible takes some brass, I'll give him that much.
The protagonist here has as much in common with the Noah of the Bible as Aronofsky does.
Surprised he didn't really go for broke on grabbing big box office and just call it 'Harry Potter and the Really Really Big Boat" instead. What with all the magic bean and magic grandpa jazz thrown into the mix, not to mention Hermione Granger in her skinny jeans already aboard.
That would be about as legitimate as calling it 'Noah'. Really the whole thing amounts to a pretty dreadful agenda film that does a real disservice to the titular character.
