Interesting tho more fiction than fact

Based on the book by Kenneth Anger. Anger narrates during the movie while a passenger in the back of a hearse. Individual stories surrounding various hollywood practices, incidents and stars. While each are based on fact like someone's death, he expounds the story of their life or death often to an absurd point. That makes it interesting but obviously not reality. Of course if you have no knowledge of the incidents or people discussed, he does make it sound believable. There are also some brief snippets & discussions of Anger's own films. If I missed watching this, I would not have missed much.
