wasn't feeling it as it started out, but as it progressed the imagery became more interesting and even genuinely creepy. a bit amateurish, yes, but that might add something to the experience. i wonder what we're supposed to take away from a guy sticking a lit firework in place of his cock.

Archetypal, artful, and amateurish, for better and worse. Its unprecedented homoerotic content secures it an undeniable place in film history.

There are some sparks of inventiveness, and it's kind an interesting film but doesn't quite transcend the fact that this is an early amateurish effort, however it's important to Anger's overall body of work.

Not bad per se, it even has some creative visual ideas. It just isn't something that interests me.

Remarkably, frighteningly proficient short. While the cinematography is certainly amateurish, the ideas and other execution certainly isn't.

A masochistic fantasy/dream/nightmare. This is my first experience with Kenneth Anger, and I have to say I'm a little underwhelmed, especially as this seems to be one of his most renowned works. Rather typical experimental film, with a few intriguing ideas but it's almost as if they happened by accident. I can appreciate that it was surely quite radical for its time (both in style and content) but it didn't do much for me.

Early, somewhat amateurish Anger short that hints at later, superior work. A few powerful images but not quite there yet.
