Gazing out of your office window, imagine seeing a giant ape leap into sight. Bounding from rooftop to rooftop, King Kong was a boxoffice giant. As much a victim as a threat to society, this beast speaks to two fears - that of monsters and that of human greed. In his painterly ode to movie posters, Philippe Le Miere recalls the power of the silver screen. Like a jump edit, his expressionistic style both celebrates and disrupts regular viewing, asking why certain films transfix us.
