Ti West on

The Golden Child

Released 1986
Distributor Paramount

From the Golden Era of Eddie Murphy hits comes this offbeat combination of comedy and mysticism. It’s sort of like a Bob Hope version of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Critics were not kind, but today it’s regarded as a quintessential exemplar of the ’80s studio aesthetic, troubled production history and all.
