King Kong (1933)
[2nd watch]
Rewatchathon 2021 #11
I also watched the "lost spider pit sequence" recreation, created by Peter Jackson and Weta while they were working on his 2005 remake. The making of their clip is covered in a half-hour segment of the main feature's 2.5-hour making-of documentary, and that behind-the-scenes glimpse is even more impressive than the finished piece. The amount of time and effort and skill that Jackson & Weta put into creating such a short sequence — something they themselves describe as “just a bit of fun” — is phenomenal.

Sátántangó (1994)
[#74 in 100 Films in a Year 2021]
Continuing with parts 4–6.
