Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!
This week on EPISODE ZERO they explore the fantastical world of KING KONG, the original 1933 blockbuster action/horror epic that pioneered new visual effects, new techniques in sound design, and an innovative musical score that's still influential today!
How did KING KONG break new ground, is it overdue for a reevaluation, and why is it - for better and worse - one of the key precursors to STAR WARS?
Give it a listen and find out!
