In swift succession, Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)—three very accomplished fast-paced romps of Steven Spielberg in his less arty, pre-Schindler’s List mode, where genocide is more often viewed as fun and rousing adventure for his WASP hero (Harrison Ford) against exotic third-world backdrops, and Nazis are giggly standard-issue meanies. What we need next from the master is a true synthesis: Oskar Schindler in the New and Improved Temple of Doom, this time with Vietnamese or Iraqi kids, perhaps, instead of Jewish munchkins, and lots more guiltless fun for boys of all ages.
