Kenneth Anger Interview in the Guardian

How fantastic is it that he's still alive, and still working?

As a completely oblivious teenager, I saw Scorpio Rising at a film society in Chicago. In a way, it was better not having any expectations, or knowing anything about Anger's work. I'm really glad that I got to see it on a reasonably sized screen because let's face it, they ain't gonna be screening it at Filmstreams in Omaha. Uh uh, nope. I don't even know if you could find it on Netflix. I've been trying to think of nasty things to write on Post-It Notes I can affix to the DVD rental box at the supermarket. I suppose , "Your stupid late-capitalist machine doesn't have any Kenneth Anger films", might be a start.
