  1. itwstlnd's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    I don't care about Crowley, rituals and occultism but I appreciate the playfulness

  2. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

  3. João R's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    An exceptional opening followed by sinister and eccentric presences.

  4. TheCinemaAdventurist's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    This is a movie you probably would enjoy under the influence of hallucinogenics

  5. Terri Wise's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    My favorite Kenneth Anger film.

  6. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    A mess of visual effects in what seems to be an erotic magical theater with its many strange characters. I feel that the image follow the music instead of the other (or working together). But as always with Anger, this movie is a great ritual of cinema and offer a picture completely free on the form.

  7. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    The opening section looks like one of my music films, but without the religious motif. Otherwise a not essential film by Anger with a mix of operatic-theatrical weirdness and freakin' psychedelism.

  12. Magda Magdy's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    Saw the "Eldorado version" re-cut in 1978. Needless to say, it's an absolute visual stunner !

  23. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    Ambiciosa puesta en escena de Anger. Una especie de recreación de lo que sería una ópera pagana. No creo necesidad de fabricar argumentos o lecturas. El corto es lo que es: la necesidad de Anger por poner en escena una de las fascinaciones, obsesiones que tuvo desde antes de iniciarse al cine. El ocultismo y las religiones paganas como elementos que interactúan en su línea fílmica: lúdica, fantasiosa, a todo color.

  24. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

    Don't know a lot about Crowley/the occult so most of the symbolism was lost on me but this was a gorgeous short. The colors, the practical effects and the imagery really hold up to anyone open to them. It's inspiring to see something like this done with no money and be this good. Nice to see Anais Nin pop up. Can see how this would be a big influence on Derek Jarman's stuff.
