Raiders Re-Imagined

Here’s an intriguing item that popped up recently. Steven Soderbergh has posted a re-imagined version of Raiders of the Lost Ark, replacing the audio and removing the color, all to enhance the ‘staging’ of the movie. The film producer has a point; even without the classic score, quote-friendly dialogue and saturated colors, the film fizzes with atmosphere and I’m sure others could learn a lot from this toned-down masterpiece.

I read somewhere that Spielberg originally wanted to produce the film in black and white. Whilst I’m glad that he didn’t, I can see his reasoning. Visit Soderbergh’s Extension 765 website to see the film.
