The Lost City of Z is a good old fashioned movie. Old fashioned because it is about exploration when earth was a mysterious place upon which it was still considered bold for man to leave his mark. Not the exhausted planet over which we weep today.
And, it is the classic story: Travel into the unknown excites the imagination, fosters ambition, attracts glory. Then, the ultimate discovery is revealed. It is the hidden place inside. From ambition to acceptance. Some find that "lost city." Some never do.
