"Raiders of the Lost Ark was the first American movie I saw. It was in the days when Russia was the Soviet Union, and we weren't allowed to have VCRs. But whoever had a VCR would invite 15 to 20 people over; so imagine a little room with people cramped in there watching movies from the United States. That's how I saw Raiders. And I was blown away bi it. We all were."
