AGUIRRE, DER ZORN GOTTES (1972)

A descent into madness with conquistadors searching fruitlessly for El Dorado, that Werner Herzog dragged a full movie crew down the Amazon to shoot.

THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948)

A story where three very grizzled dudes find gold in the wilderness and it drives them all nuts. A manly man’s parable about greed.

KING KONG (1933)

The original monster movie continues to thrill when it comes to its giant gorilla. The rest of the movie has not aged as well.

PRINCESS MONONOKE (1997)

A gorgeous animation classic that is firmly for adults, about the eternal struggle between humans and their environment.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981)

The first Indiana Jones movie defined its genre for more than one generation of moviegoers.
