In King Kong (Cooper & Shoedsack, 1933), when Anne Darrow is tied up to be sacrificed to Kong, she is filmed from in front and behind her. The camera also frames her from the side- focuses on her hands being tied to the post. Here, as well as being a sacrificial victim, she is also trapped visually be the camera.
When Kong is on Broadway, he becomes aggravated by the flashes of cameras and gains strength enough to break free of the chains of man. Yet as the movie camera lingers on a shot of the flashes of photographic cameras, their role in his escape is emphasised.
So we have here a film about the danger of the camera. Something that was created in order to commemorate reality and preserve life, actually leading mankind to risky ambitions, and potentially leading to destruction of the world.
