    “The montage of hermetic symbols becomes first dreamlike, then menacing;
    centuries of mystical thought are distilled into a series of voyeuristic
    fantasies, a kinky #psychodrama backed by the #Carnival strains of a
    maleficent calliope. Anger intended #Lucifer Rising to stand as a form of
    #ritual marking the death of the old religions like Judaism and
    Christianity, and the ascension of the more #nihilistic age of Lucifer.”

    Bizzare. But interesting how deep into Crowley Jimmy Page was even once
    buying his home. What I wonder is why modern occultists so fixated on
    ancient Egypt? What it is about Egypt? Like why not ancient Greece or
    India, etc.

    Soundtrack takes me away to I don’t know where. This is a piece of
    avant-garde work that only Kenneth Anger could do. Saturated with occult,
    Egyptian symbolism secretly showing deeper meanings that only the initiate
    can understand. Long live Jimmy Page. Magnificent ethereal theater of
    mysticism. Me like a lot!

    saw this during Film I in college. Our teacher made a feature length fim
    about John Waters who was highly influenced by Kenneth Anger. He also read
    a letter to class that was written to him by Anger who threatened to sue
    his balls off should he use any images/sounds from his films on the Waters
    documentary. Somethin about a book review on Hollywood Babylon II that
    Anger didn’t cotton to. Interesting guy.

    Kenneth Anger – Lucifer Rising

    ” Lucifer Rising is a short film by director Kenneth Anger. The film was
    completed in 1972 but was only widely distributed in 1980. Anger began
    filming around 1966, hiring a young musician named Bobby Beausoleil to act
    and compose the soundtrack. The film was abandoned in 1967 because Anger
    claimed the film footage had been stolen by Beausoleil. (Beausoleil and
    others said that Anger had simply spent all the money for the film). Anger
    then used some of the existing footage in another short film, Invocation of
    My Demon Brother. Beausoleil was convicted of killing Gary Hinman under the
    orders of Charles Manson in 1970. Anger began filming again several years
    later, with British singer Marianne Faithfull appearing in the film. Jimmy
    Page was brought in to record the soundtrack, but after he had a falling
    out with Anger, he was replaced by Beausoleil, who wrote and recorded the
    music in prison.

    I don’t get it, what is he trying to convey? Crowley obviously is not evil
    and so does lucifer…. I think all he wanted is to scared people off from
    the occult…. anyways, all the symbolism are there but don’t get what’s he
    trying to say….
