Harrison Ford Indiana Jones, the legend of Gigi Riva and 8 other movies in theaters or streaming




What is the best definition for Indiana Jones and the Quadrant of Destiny? 1) a tribute to Harrison Ford, a very dear Hollywood star now in his eighties who has been the protagonist in his career, as well as to the adventurer archaeologist Indiana Jonesof a formidable 3-in-a-row – cult that includes Star Wars, Blade Runners and in minor roles of American Graffiti And Apocalypse Now? Ford an activist for Tibet, supporter of LGBTQ rights, aircraft pilot, owner of a four square kilometer ranch Jackson Hole, Wyominghere it was even rejuvenated in the initial sequence thanks also to an artificial intelligence software developed by Disney.
2) Or we could just define The Quadrant of Destiny The fifth, definitive chapter of a saga started by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Arksaga undoubtedly age faced with the great strides that technology has made in the last forty years, but still with a large vintage charm dictated by memory? In the opening words, a young Indy must recover the spear of Longinus soaked in the blood of Christ, coveted by Hitler, on a train of the Third Reich.
3) Or again we could consider the big film (143 minutes straight) a well-conceived galloping summer blockbuster that delves into nostalgia, pressing on the heart and engaging the brain, a sort of first aid manual for those who want to try their hand at the archeo-fantasy genre in the future? You choose the solution you prefer: the result does not change.
Of course, Harrison Ford is not just any star. The titles mentioned would be enough to transform every appearance of him into an event. As a pragmatic, linear, physical actor. His greatness is felt in his stage presence: a step, a look raise the specific weight of the film, its unmistakable voice, its winning choices. He himself said: When you play a character who throws himself over the back of a vehicle there is nothing to play. You just damn have to do it. We therefore find Professor Indiana Jones close to the retreat. a hero at sunset: he knows it and is not too sorry about it. He accepts the rules, he thinks he has the best behind him but looks to the future, although displaced by a world that finds it hard to recognize its conquests. Many years have passed since the hunt for the Nazis in the castle of Evil and even the German scientist Jrgen Voller (Mads Mikkelsen) collaborates with NASA but we immediately realize that he is an infiltrated bad guy. We are in 1969, on the eve of the conquest of the Moon and the influence of pop culture, the Beatles and David Bowie is felt. Indy wouldn’t want to hear about that noise anymore, but he has a goddaughter, Helena Wombat Shaw (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), with her own boiling blood, who has a fixation on the Archimedes Quadrant, a precious tool for identifying temporal holes.
Director James Mangold calls Helena rather shifty, the girl next door, a con artist. she who leads the game, this time. When the made omelette comes on the scene. The adventure begins. And it amuses us, even without the Spielberg-Lucas touch, beyond some inevitable repetitions and despite a retro tone that sounds like a caress in the most intricate moments: as if the film were taking you by the hand. Mangold underlines the generation gap, cooks the show with a frenetic rhythm, passes in a flash from Manhattan to Tangier up to the Syracuse of Dionysus. Ah, in the cast there is also Antonio Banderas, who confessed that thanks to Harrison Ford / Indiana Jones he became an actor. Not the only one.
