Kenneth Anger

I was just watching some movies on the refinished Kenneth Anger collection - Puce Moment and Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome - and I just can't believe how awesome these movies are. Absolutely beautiful.

Poets seem always to be talking about Stan Brakhage, but I'll take Anger over Brakhage any day (not that you have to choose).

Also, the new collection has hilarious and wonderful commentary from Anger to go along with the films. For example in Puce Moment he talks about where he got the dresses and dogs etc.

FYI, the people who made that DVD possible lost money on their labor of love *and* had to deal with the maker, who's not named Anger for nothing.

BTW i'm solidly in the Brakhage camp, not that you have to choose.
