King Kong


Dir. Merian C. Cooper & Ernst Schoedsack (1933).
No remake can ever equal the crazy grandeur of the original. Imagine Jaws as a love story and you still won’t get the flavor of this psychosexual, rampantly imperialist, special effects spectacular—supremely irrational and hence a great favorite of the French Surrealists.
