Why I Watched It: It’s been years and years since I last saw Raiders of the Lost Ark (I haven’t logged it on Letterboxd, which means it might be a decade since my last viewing), and it’s hard to imagine a better piece of escapism right now. It’s got action, comedy, period fashions, and globetrotting adventure — a lovely antidote to being trapped at home in the grim spring of 2020. There’s also been a lot of talk lately about Indiana Jones 5, which was supposed to go into production in the near future without Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair, which made a rewatch a bit more timely now as well.

This is also the first time I’ve watched Raiders since I watched a bunch of the old Hollywood serials that helped inspired it, which gave me a new perspective on its episodic structure and the way Spielberg and producer/writer George Lucas varied their action sequences. (Many serials offered a different spectacle week by week; Raiders opens with borderline horror, then the next big beat is a fist fight, followed by a foot chase, and then a truck chase. All that plus easy access on Netflix made it a no-brainer. Here are five things I took away from this viewing…
