Kong on Sunday

Submit to the giant barrel-throwing monkey!


If you haven't yet seen The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, Sunday night would be a great opportunity. Locally raised director Seth Gordon will appear at the 7 and 9:10 p.m. shows at the Varsity, and conduct Q&A sessions after the screenings. We first told you about the film at SIFF, and it's since earned very nice reviews. And after the movie, you can play your own game of fantasy casting for the feature version of Kong (also to be directed by Gordon). Try to decide who should play mild-mannered Redmond schoolteacher Steve Wiebe and his nefarious Florida rival, Billy Mitchell. My current choices, respectively, are John Krasinski and a slimmed-down Jack Black.
