This set brings together ten films by influential cult director Kenneth Anger and a documentary about him by Elio Gelminis. This compilation of his works comprises of: ’Fireworks’ (1947), ’Puce Moment’ (1949), ’Rabbit’s Moon’ (1950/1971), ’Eaux D’Artifice’ (1953), ’Inaugaration of the Pleasure Dome’ (1954), ’Scorpio Rising’ (1964), ’Kustom Kar Kommandos’ (1965), ’Invocation of My Demon Brother’ (1969), ’Rabbit’s Moon’ (1979 version) and ’Lucifer’s Rising’ (1981).

Occultist, provocateur and waspish muckraker, Kenneth Anger is among the more interesting figures in film history. The underground nature of his work – defiantly underground, resolutely avant garde – has meant it’s more discussed than actually seen, so this comprehensive collection is a cause for jubilation.

His work can be hermetic. The striking Inaugurations of the Pleasure Dome, would seem inspired by the Tarot, but it’s also ‘about’ colour, music and movement, all of which are orchestrated to perfection. Anyone who cherishes garish beauty should seek it out. It’s a tribute to Anger that the world still hasn’t caught up with what he was doing fifty or more years ago. These invocations are commended to everyone with a taste for a drop of the hard stuff.
