Raiders is a very good film, artfully made. It may well be Spielberg's
best film. It is vastly underrated because it's an action/adventure, so
is immediately dismissed from even the possibility of being art.
And, while it was regarded as pretty good evidence of criminality to be
living in a slum, for some reason owning a whole street of them merely
got you invited to the very best social occasions.
