King Kong

King Kong ★★★★★

King Kong is the kind of film that works on so many levels, it depends on the mind set that I'm in to how it is interpreted. Yet, the core value of the film goes beyond just the adventures of a film crew who happens upon an island of giant monsters and an iconic ape, it's a film looking at the good and evil inherent natures of man. Take it for what it is as a film far too ahead of its own time with its memorable stop motion animation and brilliant score and also take it for a film that remains as relevant now as it was in 1933 with its themes and distinctive layering. King Kong is that kind of cinema. It transcends.
