I had first seen Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes sometime in the late 80’s. Seeing it again now in preparation for the article on Cinesthesia, I feel pretty much the same way: It’s a good movie, particularly during the first hour or so taking place in the jungle, but suffers a bit from a rather stuffy second act where Tarzan becomes Lord Greystoke. In any case, check out my friend Rogelio’s article here: Cinesthesia – Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. He really loves it, and it almost makes me want to change my rating. But I won’t.
