Raiders of the Lost it was meant to be seen

After reading recently that to prepare for making a film director Steven Soderburgh watches Raiders of the Lost Ark three times I was intrigued. But not that he watches it that many times, but that he does so in Black and White.

Going for a full emulation of the serial style Raiders set out to pay tribute to, seeing the effective use of light and shadow highlighted by the black and white was an amazing experience. The film already ranks high on my list but this just brought it up to a whole new level.

So next time you feel the desire to visit the wonderful film, drop your saturation and enjoy a hidden difference to this wonderful gem.
