The chattering classes gonna chatter. So dead-on a portrait of first-world problems I was hoping it was a deep cover parody. Unfortunately, I fear it was intended as an earnest story, however blackly comic.
Indiana Joan and the Temple of Derp
The opening crawl admits that the film is a reenactment of Lowell's account of her voyage. But it falls so neatly into the tropes of action and adventure in tropical climes that--even before the conspicuously staged beast-on-beast fights--any resemblance to actual events must be coincidental. Then of course in the temple, while Joan is trying to find the fabled emerald, Joan and the native princess/priestess get into a catfight, showing plenty of thigh in the process. Not recommended even if you are a crank like me who will watch ANYTHING from 1934 or earlier.
