Three orbs appear before the main title. The film proper begins with a close-up of Anger standing before a star-patterned backdrop. He gazes at a naked man reclining on a divan. Appropriated footage of soldiers leaping from a helicopter is cut in. Implying that war is a ritual like any other, the next scene shows young people passing around a marijuana cigarette and playing instruments. A robed figure appears in smoke, waving a wand. A close-up of a spider tattoo is shown, then a ritual with a ram's head and magick symbols is performed. A man dressed as a devil enters the ceremony, followed by footage of men in leather jackets (a group of Hell's Angels). The Nazi flag is used in the ceremony. People in costumes and robes playing instruments walk down a staircase. This is followed by quick cuts of Mick Jagger performing at a concert before a wild throng--a rock concert can be a ritual like any other. The film ends with a naked young man standing, arms outstretched, with a spiral projected on his body. The soundtrack throughout the film consists of manipulated white noise, sounding at times like gunfire or a siren

Anger me ( Visual )
in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The documentary Anger Me is the story of the life, literary and motion-picture accomplishments of Kenneth Anger, a pivotal figure in the history of experimental film. An innovator and a pioneer, he literally blazed his own trail. Considered to be one of the major personalities of the 1960's and 1970's underground art scene, Kenneth defines himself as a "cinematographic magician" and his "cinema" as a ritualistic form. Anger's films have taken audiences to places where only great film poets can arrive."--Container

Collection of films by Kenneth Anger. "A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV, Anger's work serves as a talisman of universal symbols and personal obsessions, combining myth, artifice and ritual to render cinema with the power of spell or incantation."--Publisher's web site
