Synopsis

A landmark of both experimental and gay/lesbian filmmaking, Kenneth Anger’s film is a bizarre, disturbing dreamscape of violation, rape, and homoerotic sadomasochism.

Fireworks Instrueret af Kenneth Anger

Kritikeranmeldelser

It explored the pleasures and perils of same-sex desire and interracial identification in a culture in which homosexuals and racial minorities were demonized and persecuted. Seventy years later, the film feels just as prescient. In an America perpetually at war with enemies real and phantasmagoric, Anger’s subversive eroticization of politics confronts the sadism of imperial power with the masochism of the queer subject. It is arguably the most political wet dream ever filmed.

…In employing and indeed mastering this form with Fireworks, Anger forever established himself as one of the leading figures in the post-war American avant-garde, and his later works would only serve to buttress that position.
