Raiders of the Lost Ark

This is a perfect movie. Perfect, I tell you! There may be other Spielberg movies that are "better", but I don't think it's possible to construct a movie more flawlessly than this one.

This time, I was particularly impressed with the fight on the plane. There's a shot where the camera is rotating with the plane, and in the background, the big pool of gasoline has ignited, and the fire spreads right along with the panning camera. It's very nice.
