  • R.I.P. Kenneth Anger

    "Kenneth Anger, the artist and film-maker whose work offered a distinctively radical mix of paganism and homoeroticism, has died aged 96. Art gallery Sprüth Magers confirmed his death, saying: “Through his kaleidoscopic films, which combine sumptuous visuals, popular music soundtracks, and a focus on queer themes and narratives, Anger laid the groundwork for the avant garde art scenes of the later 20th century, as well as for the visual languages of contemporary queer and youth culture.”

    Legendary filmmaker. I love that he lived as long as he did. RIP.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

      He was never my thing, but happy to hear about talent that has had a great run. RIP.

        A bit late weighing in on this one, but I've been fascinated by Anger and his films ever since I was a teenager, so very sad to see him go.

        He seemed like one of those eerie, age-defying people who would live forever, so it's a shame he didn't make 100.

        I just posted a long-winded tribute to him here, so won't repeat myself.
