Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), 115 min.
Directed by Steven Spielberg
Three uber-villains, five continents, Ten Commandments, innumerable snakes, and one battered but undaunted hero: the archeologist Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford). The year is 1936, and the Nazis are expanding their territories and plundering treasures along the way. Their sights are set on the Ark of the Covenant. Can Indiana beat them to it?
