Raiders ★★★★

I was somehow under the impression that Steven Soderbergh's alternate version of Raiders of the Lost Ark was recut, but it appears to be merely desaturated and muted. But suppress your "my kid could do that" instinct and let Raiders affirm how expertly crafted Spielberg's original is.

The narrative is never less than fully clear, the expressive actors (especially the delightful Karen Allen) tell you everything you need to know with their faces, and the sheer scope and sprawl of the adventure become apparent.
