"It is a symbol of Irish art. The cracked lookingglass of a servant." -- James Joyce
Geographical Malfeasance in Movies #23
In recently re-viewing The Raiders of the Lost Ark, I found myself cracking up at the car chase scene when one of Indiana Jones's foes, after chasing him through several miles of lush vegetation, plunges off of what appears to be a thousand-or-so-foot cliff. I haven't been to Egypt, but I'm pretty sure the only extensive areas of lush vegetation are in the Nile River valley, which I'm pretty sure is never a thousand feet above some land on its border!
