Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

One of the most influential and successful American films ever made, Raiders of the Lost Ark manages to combine taut direction, excellent writing, cutting-edge special effects, and an enthralling narrative, all while propelling the name 'Indiana Jones' into the mind of millions.

When you really look at how successful and consequential this film was in terms of modern filmmaking, it really is incredible.

Few directors have ever put out as many gems as Spielberg has done consistently for three decades.
