How Kenneth Anger Created Camp Cinema with His Short Film, 'Puce Moment'

Looking Back at Anger, or, We Always Have Paris

Anger's films are suffused with the stuff of the Romantic Id: dream-logic, transgressive eroticism and taboo subjects, attention to color and music, literary references, religous and mythical elements, experimental editing and superimpositions.
