yesterday i got a bunch of dvds in the mail. the one i was the most excited to finally have is the films of kenneth anger volume I. when it comes to experimental cinema the three names that tend to get mentioned over and over again(and rightfully so) are maya deren, stan brakhage and of course kenneth anger. the booklet for the anger collection has an introduction by martin scorsese. it’s a little funny that he talks about what an impression scorpio rising made on him, when it’s not even featured on this collection. hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for volume two.
