Supersleazy companion piece to Anger's book
18 June 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is pure exploitation (in the best sense). You take some scenes from classic public domain films (Keaton etc.) mixed it with historical WWI footage and then you spice it up with some wild softcore re-enactments of the scandals from Kenneth Anger's "Hollywood Babylon" book and, BANG!, you've got a hit! Oliver Stone, eat your heart out! Boobqueen Uschi ("Supervixens", "Scavengers", "Touch Of Sweden" etc.) Digart's portrait of a lesbian Marlene Dietrich is a blast. More informative (and funnier) than Discovery History Channel! The slick but stale flicks of the PC 90's can't hold a candle to the wonderful world of 70's exploitation cinema. So get your psychotronic kicks, daddy-o!
