A wonderful article in the Sunday Herald Online pays tribute to film-maker Donald Cammell at the anniversary of his suicide…

Bullet Through His Art by Mark Cousins discusses Donald's relationship with “his writer-poet father Charles [C R Cammell, author of Aleister Crowley: The Man, The Myth, The Mage], an heir to shipping magnates who lost their fortunes in the Wall Street Crash, and who had written a book on notorious Satanist Aleister Crowley, wanted his son to be a painter and sent him to the Royal Academy.”The article mentions: “Underground director Kenneth Anger cast him as Osiris, the Egyptian god of death, in his film Lucifer Rising (1973). Anger, who was obsessed by Aleister Crowley, knew Cammell’s father’s book on the subject and announced, in his inimitable way, that Cammell himself had a deathwish.”
