Steven Soderbergh, in an effort to showcase Douglas Slocombe’s amazing cinematography, took perennial the favourite Raiders of the Lost Ark, removed the dialogue and colour, and posted it for us to enjoy. Just because he can.
It’s actually very good, and–at least in terms of purely visual storytelling–a testament to why Raiders stands as one of the greatest films of all time!
