Nine of Kenneth Anger's films: Fireworks, Puce Moment, Rabbit's moon (extended version), Eaux d'Artifice, Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, Scorpio Rising, Kustom Kar Kommandos, Invocation of My Demon Brother, and Lucifer Rising.
A wordless film, save for a voice-over introducing us to the imagery of dreams. A shirtless young man dreams of awakening to finds photographs of a muscular sailor carrying him in his arms.... See full summary »
Not much to say about this one. Most sources state that it was simply a digital video test and never meant to be seen. Although apparently it was Dr. Anger's idea to show it publicly at the Museum of Modern Art. In any case, trying to judge this is like trying to judge "The Godfather" based on five minutes of early screen tests. If you're interested in Dr. Anger's work, give it a try (at least it's very very short). I have not seen his other recent films (such as "Mouse Heaven") so I'm not sure where or how this might fit in. Someone on a forum wanted to discuss the Magickal elements of this, but I just don't think they exist. Worth one viewing, anyway.
