2.0 out of 5 stars Rather dull, 23 April 2010
This review is from: Moonchild: The Films of Kenneth Anger (Persistence of Vision Volume 1) (Paperback)
I have to say that I wasn't impressed with this book. The main reason is that it is really rather dull. The text is not engaging, and for someone like myself who is not hugely well versed in the many other figures of experimental, underground and avant-garde cinema, I got a bit lost in parts where it just seemed to be quoting name after name. It felt at times that the writer was just rambling on, without making solid, objective statements about Anger's work, hoping that the reader knew as much about Eisenstein's techniques as the writer does. It is also of note that the pictures reproduced in the work are of relatively poor quality. I would recommend that any reader interested in Anger simply get themselves a copy of his Magick Lantern Cycle on DVD, and accompany it with Bill Landis' unofficial biography; much better than this book.
