So I managed to see "The Lost City of Zed"

After getting over the shock of not having been to a mainstream local theatre in a decade

The movie is a period peice. Wonderful attention to the little details (I heard that the director does this with their films, they want to create a whole world where the characters can inhabit). Ivory Merchant without the dissipation and apathy.

The movie is also a boy's adventure story. Those can be fun
(When I saw a certain scene I laughed because it reminded me so much of a certain famous scene in tbe first Raiders of the Lost Ark movie)

The only issue I had with the movie was with the light. When goinv through the jungle, when sunny, I felt the show was too dim. I had to get up and go to the back to see if it was just my angle. I've been spoiled by Terrence Malik who does amazing things with light in his movies.

Ty DG for serendipitously introducing me to a film I would otherwise never have seen
