Anger, Kenneth

Anger, Kenneth

▪ American filmmaker and author
born Feb. 3, 1930, Santa Monica, Calif., U.S.

      American independent filmmaker and author.

      Anger became interested in film at an early age; he had a small role in Max Reinhardt's version of A Midsummer Night's Dream (1934) when he was four years old. After graduating from Beverly Hills High School, he directed and starred in his first successful film, Fireworks (1947). He then moved to Paris, where he joined the literary circle of French writers Jean Cocteau and Anaïs Nin. While in Europe, Anger filmed La Lune des Lapins (1950; Rabbit's Moon), Eaux d'Artifice (1953; “Waters by Artifice”), and the Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954). Anger returned to the United States to shoot his hallmark film, Scorpio Rising (1963), a documentary on motorcyclists in New York City. His next major film, Lucifer Rising (1974; second version, 1980), took over a decade to complete and, like many of his movies, dealt with mysticism and the occult. Anger wrote two books on scandals in American movie history entitled Hollywood Babylon (1965) and Hollywood Babylon II (1984).
