"My boy, we're pilgrims in an unholy land."
Sometimes, one has to take a leap of faith. A sense of trust in something seemingly impossible, something that could hurt you, something that could not be real. Trust that a God is real. Trust that your father still loves you, deep down. Trust that this movie will be as good as I remembered it being when I saw it in my teenage years.
My faith held true! This is one of the greatest live action films ever created. Indiana Jones turns it's narrative gaze to the famous Holy Grail, but it quickly morphs into a race against the Nazis yet again, just like in Lost Ark. Everything seems to be going fine for Indiana, that is, until he's dealing with emotional complications due to his absent father becoming more and more directly involved.
The movie is beautifully shot, has a great cast (Sean Connery brings SUCH life to Indiana's father, making him into an equally amusing, clever and memorable character), and is a spectacular ending to a beloved trilogy. Thank you, Indiana Jones!
