King Kong, if I can stand walking in the cold. I mean to.

I saw the original last week for the first time. The first twenty minutes or so are from a movie no one would ever bother to remember. But the last hour, paced no differently than a modern action blockbuster, achieves a weird, fever-like, almost hallucinogenic quality. I was completely absorbed by it.

Interesting to see what Peter Jackson needs three hours to do what the original manages in ninety minutes.


Glad the books are arriving for everyone. Again, sorry for the delay.
