Description


Cultural Writing. Gay/Lesbian Studies. Kenneth Anger: author of Hollywood Babylon, true disciple of Aleister Crowley, former mentor to both Bobby Beausoleil and Mick Jagger, amongst others-and certainly one of the most original and talented film-makers of the 20th Century. MOONCHILD presents revelatory texts on the occult, mind-altering, homo-erotic, synaesthetic and pop-culture tropes to be found within such classic underground films as Fireworks, Inaugeration of the Pleasure Dome, Scorpio Rising, Kustom Kar Kommandos, Invocation of My Demon Brother, and Lucifer Rising. MOONCHILD also contains a host of opulent film images, quotes from Kenneth Anger, and a detailed filmography, making it the definitive study of one of cinema's most charismatic yet elusive innovators. "Kenneth Anger is a unique film-maker, an artist of exceptional imagination"-Martin Scorsese.
