larger than life
'the beast from 20,000 fathoms' was one of the first films to feature a dinosaur. released in 1953, it was a hit (Budget $210,000 Gross revenue $5,000,000) and led to countless more films about beasts hoping take a bite out of the big apple or some small town. when i drive over the george washington bridge into nyc i often experience one of those unexplainable moments when i think i just may see something like that take place. i don't know if i fear it or desire it.
