Abstract

The Indiana Jones series is on the foundation of the so called «blockbuster» phenomenon, a cinema that represents huge financial investments for the studios every year but is usually disregarded by scholars as empty. Despite that, it would be fair to ask if blockbuster movies can transmit a given «ethos» beyond entertainment. The movie «Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull» is analyzed here to show that, along with the pursuit of economic profits, it is possible to find more complex intentions. In this specific case, education is fostered as an essential human value that must be cultivated.
