  1. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Kongo

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Kongo

    Remake of Tod Browning's West of Zanzibar (1928). Unfortunately William J. Cowen does not have the talent of Freaks's director and his mise en scene is too theatrical. So let's focus on the actors, Walter Huston, Lupe Velez, Virginia Bruce and Conrad Nagel who give a superb performance here. On the other side, let's keep quiet in front of Hollywood's description of African natives directly inspired by comic books.
