More than half a lifetime ago I was in art school, studying film, and at that time Kenneth Anger was one of my major heroes. Another one of my heroes was Aleister Crowley, who is also a hero of Kenneth Anger and a key to watching many Anger's films. Since then Aleister Crowley has become something I "used to be into" (it feels like several lifetimes ago), so when I now view Kenneth Anger films it's not only with the eyes of a man whose been middle-aged for some time, but also it's with the sensibilities of a man who has zero interest or appreciation of the occult.
The Phoenix Library has a copy of this video and I checked it out a few years back for a week (I believe they have since lost their copy, though I'm not sure). I was familiar with all the films in this collection since the school I went to had copies of most of these 16 mm films and during the period I attended Kenneth Anger was a regular visiting artist, presenting his work usually once a year. But like I said, that was a long time ago.
I was disappointed to find that "Rabbit Moon" has since become shorter and less accessible, no longer having a soundtrack of early 60's music, songs like: "There's A Moon Out Tonight", "I Only Have Eyes For You" and another I believe was called "There Will Be Tears On My Pillow Tonight". Instead it was replaced by some obnoxious song that didn't convey any of the original meaning and the feeling that I was anticipating. And what's worse, this one terrible song is repeated! I'm sure Anger probably had trouble getting the rights to use the prior music he had on the early 1970's version of "Rabbit Moon", but the solution he found to the problem, as well as the reediting, had ruined a film that I had fond memories of.

There are not many underground films made by a 17 year-old gay kid on the weekend when his parents were away that I would recommend for the population at large. In fact, this may be the only one. If you appreciate great editing, and can further appreciate the foreshadowing of the styles used in this film, please see it. Be warned, Anger is very often a gateway to other film-makers that have even more unusual histories and sometimes as exceptional films. Others by Anger (though not on Amazon yet) Kustom Kar Komandos and The Rebel.

Favorable reviews regarding this short film are themselves legendary and all appear to derive from the same source.

"Mystic Fire Video" had made an extremely bad copy of Mr. Anger's film and no DVD is available.

But before Sheldon Rochlin died, I sent the retail purchased VHS copies of KA's films back to Mystic Fire; and after a considerable delay, Mr. Rochlin , himself a well known film maker, telephoned me, apologized and replaced said copies at no fee whatever. A class guy. I'm sorry he's dead.

Fireworks is a short B&W silent film circa 1947 regarding a young man out for an evening walk and adventure confronted by the brutality of a group of sailors

Its dream like visual expression makes Fireworks a classic.

One of the corner stones of Avant Garde films. One of Angers best and earliest. His best is Anger 3 which includes Lucifer Rising, Kar Klub Kommandos, and the Invocation of my Demon Brother. I believe a couple of rare copies are for sale in Z shops. Rare and hard to find but all his films are worth the search and the money
