Failed and Cheap Documentary on Kenneth Anger, a disgrace to the master's name!
9 October 2007 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I saw this so-called film by Elio Gelmini at the Viennale 2006 in presence of the director and the master Mr. Anger himself. The film contains no particularly new information on Kenneth Anger, and only covers up his films and art, but his private life (what could have been interesting) isn't covered at all. But the most disgraceful aspect was that Mr. Anger's face was put in front of a blue-screen, whereas on the blue-screen, clips from his films were shown and generic blue sky videos, which is below the quality of a TV documentary. There was a scene in the beginning where Jonas Mekas is interviewed, in the back was a copyrighted poster, so the director just blurred the parts of the screen so the poster couldn't be seen. The things Yes, Mr. Anger said were interesting, but you can find these informations in any book about him, the film is more of a 71 minute interview, and not a film, the title "Anger Me" doesn't have any meaning at all and makes no sense regarding the master of US avantgarde cinema. Overall a very unsatisfying picture offering nothing new in terms of Kenneth Anger and documentary film-making.
