one could easily wonder how it is possible that Kenneth Anger still is able to make movies today... isn't he like really old by now? yet, he continues to make movies as if he were only twenty-three. what an oeuvre! off course, one cannot deny the impact of his experimental short film Scorpio Rising on MTV and it's music clips, now it is those music clips of MTV that has probably been the greatest influence on Anger's newest flick, 'Missoni', and boy, what a rush once more! it's a montage (it's an Anger, how could it be anything else than a montage) containing lots of really modern dressed (or as good as naked) people, in a way which resembles Puce Moment and Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, as well as Lucifer Rising and Invocation of my Demon Brother. yes, this one short is the top of them all, it picks out its best ingredients and makes something totally new out of it with new images that will appeal to a young audience. way to go Kenneth Anger! you rule!
