Editorial Reviews

Cinematic magician, legendary provocateur, author of the infamous HOLLYWOOD BABYLON books and creator of some of the most striking and beautiful works in the history of film, Kenneth Anger is a singular figure in post-war American culture. A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorsese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV, Anger s work serves as a talisman of universal symbols and personal obsessions, combining myth, artifice and ritual to render cinema with the power of a spell or incantation. This 2-DVD set contains Anger's complete Magick Lantern Cycle, from his landmark debut FIREWORKS in 1947 to his breathtaking phantasmagoria LUCIFER RISING in 1981. Fantoma is very proud to present the films of this revolutionary and groundbreaking maverick, painstakingly restored and presented on DVD for the first time in one collection. Contains the films: Fireworks (1947) Puce Moment (1949) Rabbit s Moon (1950, the rarely seen original 16 minute version) Eaux d Artifice (1953) Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954) Scorpio Rising (1964) Kustom Kar Kommandos (1965) Invocation Of My Demon Brother (1969) Rabbit s Moon (1979 version) Lucifer Rising (1981)

Format: DVD
Kenneth Anger is where the worlds of sub-culture, counter-culture, surrealism, the Avant Garde, Aleister Crowley's Thelema and Anton LaVey's Satanism meet. Anger became interested in Crowley's Occult writings and philosophy of Thelema when in his teens and became a life-long friend of LaVey's - being involved in the founding of the Church of Satan. Notable for his scandalous, revelatory books on the private lives of Tinseltown Stars, "Hollywood Babylon" & "Hollywood Babylon II", his involvements with the Rolling Stones in the 1960's and Jimmy Page in the 1970's have become legendary. Born in 1927, the now Octogenarian Anger has made in excess of 40 films during his cinematic career - one which has seen his films being banned, stolen and/or destroyed. The Magick Lantern Cycle is the collective title given to 9 of his most influential, infamous, Magickally powerful and beautiful creations. They are vivid, wildly colourful, richly symbolic and completely dialogue-free films, with Anger often employing existing songs or classical pieces as soundtracks.

All of the films on this DVD are Artistic and Magickal masterpieces, and to cover each one in the way I would like would result in a novella-sized review. The full employment of Anger's creative, imaginative and Magick powers to pay homage to Aleister Crowley began properly with "Inauguration Of The Pleasure Dome" in 1954, which is an elaborate, fully costumed Thelemic Ritual of many participants, played out to Janacek's "Glagolithic Mass". 10 years later Anger made "Scorpio Rising" - banned soon after release on obscenity grounds; later liberated by a Supreme Court ruling. "Scorpio" features a real-life biker gang whom Anger befriended, cut with images of Christ & his disciples (from a Sunday School film).

Us fans have sat back for years hoping something like this would become available. Just wish Mr. Page would have been involved but alas he still hasn't forgotten he was fired. rofl
