    "[…]any other fanciful science-fictioney or Gilgameshy deviation from the text notwithstanding[…]"
    There's no need to deviate from the text to end up with science-fictioney or Gilgameshy results.  The story in the text is already that way before any deviation occurred.

    •  Well the point was that the movie deviated (0+ / 0-)

      from the text, incorporating elements from Gilgamesh and other sources.

      I personally feel that attempts to extract meaning from this particular text using an established set of rules are a good way to help me incorporate myself into the broader flow of humanity without straying too far from my Jewish roots.

      Tradition is a good thing. So is innovation. Art helps us to merge the two.
