Films of Anger

Films of Anger

Experimental, sexual, bold, and not-for-everyone, the work of filmmaker Kenneth Anger is nevertheless required viewing for any aspiring filmmaker or more-than-casual film buff. On January 23, Fantoma will release The Films of Kenneth Anger Volume One, a DVD set which includes five early classics (from 1947 through 1954) complete with commentaries by Anger himself. It’s probably the kind of DVD experience you’d want to do with a small group, and not necessarily solo. Anger’s work is ripe for discussion and debate, which is what makes it ideal fodder for galleries, film festivals, and film schools. DVDtalk’s Glenn Erickson serves up one of the many positive reviews in circulation, for this fairly critic-proof collection. Anger’s material is so influential yet so unseen, you can’t really argue or protest a DVD release like this. Volume Two is scheduled to hit stores in March.
