Ten great escapes

In honor of this week's The Way Back, a gulag-breakout movie, we gather our favorite getaways.


RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981)
Is this the most exciting first ten minutes of any movie? Indiana Jones whips his way past mutinous Peruvian guides, poison darts and into a fearsome chamber where a golden statue awaits. Then the cave gets mad: Unleash the boulder! It's almost too much of a good thing when Jones discovers a whole mess of angry Hovitos outside.—JR
