Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - in 10 Pictures

In anticipation of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (which was respectfully reviewed at its premiere at Cannes yesterday), I will be revisiting its 3 predecessors this week, before shuffling off my agoraphobia sometime later this month and travel to the theater. These are not films heavy in symbolism or meaning, but they are a lot of fun. This one is overly maligned for Kate Capshaw’s screeching, the R-rated violence, and the unexpected subject matter (child slavery, live sacrifice, and voodoo – which I happen to find interesting if not necessarily enjoy). What strikes me watching it again is Jones as a father figure and Spielberg’s well-directed set-pieces. I really like this one – monkey brains and all. BThe Great Wall
