The Change of Colors in my House made me watch this Movie a few Times
wow! what was Kenneth Anger thinking to express with this short documentary??? we see a lot of paintings, check. paintings of a Christ-like, check. the title refers to the devil, check. we have a nice tech-no beat on the background, check. so what does it all mean? was Anger trying to implicate a dark unknown hidden secret about Christ and paintings of Aleister Crowley?? off course not. this movie doesn't make any sense, but it's wonderful in the way it doesn't. if you watch it closely, you get the mysterious feeling you are being sucked into the painting. now, that's a special thing to say about a movie. first time I watched Brush of Baphomet, I was like: oh my God! the painting is getting hold of me... and it's true, you know: the colours of the paintings are so remarkable unreal, that they start to replace the reality we live in. very soon, my home became to resemble one of Crowley's paintings. lucky for me, this experience did not last very long. it changed back the way it was. the thing I am trying to say is: please see this movie, it will change your life in ways you cannot imagine.
