I was 12 years old, and I was irretrievably hooked by movie magic. I have earlier memories of exciting movies, but Raiders of the Lost Ark is the movie that cemented my adoration.
What is your seminal movie? Define “seminal” however you like. Or perhaps you have a seminal movie experience or movie moment, not a film itself but a moviegoing experience or an association that made you fall in love with cinema.
