Abstract

American cinema significantly makes use of universal narratives which originate from myths and religious stories. These narratives which are accepted universally address universe of common meaning values of humanity and people's common perceptions. Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky, had a great box office success thanks to having a story which was based on a universally accepted holy narration. The director refictionalizes the narratives which serve as an inspirational source for the movie in order to adapt them to the cinematographic language and to express himself better through these narratives. Accordingly, Noah, the reinterpretation of a universal narrative by Aronofsky, is seen as a topic of analysis and evaluated from an intertextual perspective by a descriptive film analysis.
