DOWNLOAD- Lucifer Rising by Kenneth Anger (1973)
It’s not only the music that made the 70’s great, the movies were awesome to! oh… The French Connection, Soylent Green and Rosmary’s Baby are some of my favourites. This however is something a bit different.
Kenneth Anger ‘s Lucifer Rising is definitely my favourite artfilm of this era. The movie shows occult rituals and ceremonies taking place in various historically magick spots at different locations around the globe. We get to see the pyramids in Egypt, the Stonehenge and several other places I dont know the name of. Egyptian mythology is blended up with some sort of diabolical aesthetic. All throughout the film there’s a strange ambient soundtrack that really adds to the visual experience. Amongst the cast you will find Jimmy Page, Marianne Faithful and Mick Jagger’s brother.
I love everything about this movie. The theme, the costumes and environments depicted is a real psychedelic eye-candy.
