“Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?” Everybody’s favorite archeologist with acute ophidiophobia, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), sets off on his first filmic adventure to find the Biblical Ark of the Covenant before certain swastika wearing Germans do. Boasting Steven Spielberg’s keen sense for incredible action set pieces, humor and visual storytelling, Raiders doesn’t come off as dated in the least. So grab your fedora and bullwhip, because Indy’s riding into the Brattle Theatre in 35mm.
