    ★★★★★

    Even the Big Bang Theory episode "The Raiders of Minimization“ can’t mess with the majesty of this film!

    Jonathan Rhys Davies as Sallah is the big heart of Raiders, I just wanna give him a big ol’ Marion Ravenwood smooch too!

    Watched with my 12yo son (not his first time), but I love how he laughs hysterically at the horrific ending to this film (ok maybe it’s not as frightening in this desensitised era, but that John Williams score tho!),…

The point being that, despite what TV shows us, and what the news stories tell us, there is never just one truth, there is only personal truth.”

    Grandfather's Friend:''What I mean to say is, suppose the kid did nothing wrong. What would you do? What then?''
    Grandfather:''I'd find an excuse and give him a beating every other week. So he wouldn't forget.''

    Often it's the smallest and simplest observations on life that are the most emotionally resonant and impactful, as is the case with Abbas Kiarostami's 1987 film Where Is the Friend's Home?, where we see immense compassion and loyalty from a child who navigates a world…
