HASH(0x963edf84) étoiles sur 5 the godfather of the cinema underground. 4 avril 2007

Kenneth Anger is an American underground film maker, as well as an occultist who is much more influential in the realms of cinema and the occult than is recognized today. The audacity of his vision is simply startling, especially by the standards of the '40s and '50s. The films in this collection are a perfect introduction to Anger's vision and style. The first five serious film endeavors of Anger, beginning in 1947 (an auspicious year for Thelemites) with Fireworks, when he was only 17 years old.

Fireworks (1947): inspired by Anger's dream, where he is beaten and raped by a gang of sailors. Anger himself said that "this flick is all I have to say about being 17, the United States Navy, American Christmas and the Fourth of July."

Puce Moment (1949): a five minute fragment of what was supposed to become a feature film called "Puce Women". The music and the motion of this fragment make it's five minutes unforgettable. Also, the sheer nihilism of how Hollywood beauty is portrayed is undeniable.

Rabbit's Moon (1950): an awesome psychodrama involving mimes and children, ritualistically yearning for the unattainable moon to 1950's pop songs. The music ingeniously compliments the imagery and action. a strange blend of French comedy, Oriental mythology, and masonic symbolism.

Eaux d'Artifice (1953): a very beautiful tour of a magickal labyrinth of waterfalls and fountains, as we follow the water witch to her final destiny - all to the tune of Vivaldi!

Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954): and it seems that they have saved the very best for last! This trippy descent into hedonistic rites is topped off with a healthy serving of Thelemic mysticism and magick. Here Anger introduces the mythology of Aleister Crowley for the first time. The Scarlet Woman is played by Cameron, the widowed wife of the famous rocket scientist and occultist Jack Parsons. Kenneth Anger has a bit part in this film as well, you can see him dressed in funereal black as the Goddess Hecate. The cabbalistic sign of Baphomet is seen as a backdrop for only a few seconds, but this would be the symbol La Vey was to employ as the symbol for the Church of Satan more than fifteen years later! This film plummets very quickly into delirium, as the orgies of pleasure and decadence reaches its crescendo, the Pleasure Dome that is being inaugurated is also an inescapable trap!

One of the best features to this collection is the audio commentary by Kenneth Anger for each film, giving us valuable insight into his artistic vision.

HASH(0x963ef1c8) étoiles sur 5 Absolutely essential 10 février 2007

Kenneth Anger was one of the pioneering avant-garde filmmakers in the United States, a fearless innovator in both style and content. In the 1940s, when FIREWORKS was made, it was a shattering and cosmos-shaking experience. This compilation of Anger's early works (made between the years 1945 and 1958) is beautifully produced, carefully transferred, and shows these works (including RABBIT'S MOON, EAUX D'ARTIFICE, PUCE MOMENT, and INAUGURATION OF THE PLEASURE DOME) to maximum advantage. His finest works are a compendium of amazing images matched with wonderful music (Anger pioneered the use of the pop music soundtrack) to create some of the most rhythmically irresistible works in the cinema. All you have to do is watch EAUX D'ARTIFICE (travelling through a Baroque garden syncopated to Vivaldi) to be transported to a world of the most extraordinary unearthly delights.

HASH(0x963ef42c) étoiles sur 5 What fools these mortals be! 18 octobre 2006
Par Kiki DeMartino - Publié sur
This is a very exciting release. I just saw most of these remastered films at UCLA and they are stunning. Of special note is the original version of Rabbit's Moon, complete with footage most people have never seen before, and a soundtrack of 1950s pop songs. I couldn't be happier that this is finally coming out, and neither could you.

HASH(0x963ef3a8) étoiles sur 5 At long last, Anger on DVD in a stellar package 19 mars 2007
Par Francisco Gonzalez - Publié sur

The work of Kenneth Anger, one of the founding fathers of American experimental cinema, were for a long time unavailable in decent video tapes. For years, only the Mystic Arts Video collection gave us the chance of experiencing Anger's magickal film visions in barely adequate copies, which gave us a scant idea of the viual and conceptual brilliance of these films, quite memorable when seen on screen.

Now Fantoma has released Volume I of the Kenneth Anger films, and one word sums up the product: EXCELLENCE. Fantoma took its time in painstaking restoration of the films, and the results are astounding: the films have never looked better.

"Fireworks" replaces the tacky opening credits from the Seventies release with a spoken-word prologue, and the original ending is restored, making the film a totally new experience even to those who think they have seen it.

The color films look gorgeous in their restored copies: "Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome" stands out in its luminous exploration of shimmering colors and inspired mise-en-scene, "Puce Moment" is lovelier than ever, and "Rabbit's Moon" shines in its original 16-minute version.

The accompanying book includes an apprteciation by Martin Scorsese, essays from Anais Nin and Samson de Brier, and rare writing by Anger, including sketches of the aborted "Puce Women" film for which "Puce Moment"was filmed.

All in all, an outstanding DVD. Let's hope Volume II won't take as long to be produced.

HASH(0x963ef99c) étoiles sur 5 Innauguration of the Pleasure Dome a Pleasure Indeed 5 février 2007

If you've seen the old Mystic Fire VHS of these films, you will be amazed at the quality of this DVD. Innauguration is breathtakingly vivid. I haven't even been able to watch all of the films yet, only Eaux d'Artifice and Innauguration, but I was so enthused by what I had seen that I couldn't wait to get on here and praise it. Ken is a visionary film maker in the most literal sense of the word. These films also come from an interesting milieu of individuals and circumstances and are important historical documents as well as lovely works of art. As a Thelemite, I have long admired Anger's art and his dedication to promulgating Aleister Crowley's teachings. Yet his art, although rooted in a Thelemic idiom, is not trapped by it, and it should appeal to anyone interested in the visual language of transcendence. I'm already slavering for volume II.
