The Lost City of Z made me sad...sad because of the fact that this man was obsessed with going into the Amazon and trying to find a so-called lost ancient city. Also, because he left his family behind and in the end, he and his son appeared to have gotten themselves killed by the natives. The movie kept me engaged, so much so that I'm going to read the book. The author has a good style of writing that keeps me engaged. Over-all, I say to go ahead and watch this movie if you have 2 and 1/2 hours to kill.
