The full video is an extra on the rather good Anger Me DVD.

Is Anger Me available for a decent price now? I checked on it in 2008 and they wanted hundreds of dollars to sell in the USA. Im outside the US now if that makes a difference in the price. I will have to consult the Google oracle.

Here we go, I found the old email.
$250 seems quite expensive...

'Anger Me' is one of the extras on the BFI 2-disc release of 'The Magick Lantern Cycle' and massively cheaper than the $250 asked by frameline - even if buying the Blu-Ray.

Can't say if the BFI release has all the extras that might be on frameline's original as frameline helpfully don't list any..... πŸ™„

Thanks, amaden-De. I just located this on the BFI website via Google. Amazing value - a two-disc set for Β£10.99, including a lot of extras, 'Anger Me' being one of them, another a documentary by Anger about Crowley's paintings:

Best wishes,

Michael.

It is a great set. Better value that the US version which didn't have Anger and came in two separate volumes. Great article too by Anger reproduced from Cahiers du Cinema. Anger revisiting the Abbey was an extra on the Anger Me DVD and is not included on the BFI set; think some of the footage is included in the documentary though.

I think the best feature of the double dvd, aparts from the booklet which contains interesting musings on Anger by Scorsese, Vab Sant and Maddin, and a Bobby Beausoleil article on the Lucifer Rising soundtrack, is the audio commentary by Anger himself for each of his works. Since there i no spoken acting, watching the films with his commentary is a hugely rewarding experience.

You are very welcome Mr Staley.
The BFI is well worth browsing there are all sorts of treasures in their shop.

Nice tip Fr. Lucius, something I'll definitely be trying (when time allows).

Just checked the link in einDoppelganger's original post - it might be pay-per-view but at less than $2 I'd go for the BFI set and pay the nominal price for the 15 minutes of 'Kenneth Anger revisits the Abbey of Thelema'.

Frameline are still showing it as $250 dollars (the old link posted by einDoppelganger is where it still is) though apparently if you qualify you might get it cheaper...(K-12 schools, public libraries and small 501c3 nonprofit organizations get a discount on their 'educational ' titles but not 'home video' titles - presumably this is classed as educational). Unless the 'Anger Me' DVD has a wealth of other extras not found anywhere else I can't see how the price is justified (or is it touched by the Hand of Anger and so a relic of sorts?)
