When will an academic ever see anything other than "the other" in King Kong movies? Not this week. You can almost hear the voice of the bespectacled fourth grader: "Look mommy, I found a racist. Can I keep him?"
Anyone out there willing to rise to the challenge of offering a real interpretation? Someone want to show us how the 1973 King Kong was the most eerily accurate prophecy of 9/11 ever filmed? Someone else want to point out that Jackson's new King Kong recapitulates the 1933 original to reveal Hollywood entertainment itself as the dominant threat to the long-term sustenance of industrial civilization? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
