KING KONG


"The movie is sparked...by Jessica Lange's fast yet dreamy comic style. Her Dwan has the high, wide forehead and clear eyed transparency of Carole Lombard in "My Man Godfrey"... She has one liners so dumb that the audience laughs and moans at the same time, yet they're in character, and when Lange says them she holds the eye and you like her, the way people liked Lombard."
The New Yorker
"Speaking in a baby doll voice that turns every syllable into a come hither, Lange does a very smart caricature of cuddly seductiveness, a knowing take on Marilyn Monroe's embarrassing irresistibility - and a little less innocent."
Salon
