About Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

In his 1984 sequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Steven Spielberg takes his satirical approach to adventure movies and dials it up to 11. The result is one of the most propulsive action-comedies ever made with one head-spinning set piece after another. Its lighthearted approach aside, the film is faithful enough to its grisly pulp fiction roots that certain scenes (like a bloodthirsty high priest burrowing into an unlucky native’s chest to pluck out his heart) heralded the new PG-13 rating from the MPAA.
