What Got This Director Here?: Lots of shorts, but mainly Scorpio Rising.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, an all-timer.
What Did I Watch: Lucifer Rising.
Where Does He Fit: “Hail Satan!” declares Lucifer Rising, opening with a score by a member of the Manson Family and an image of a furious volcano. As an experiment, this cannot be beat, a glorious call to the darkness that lurks within us all. The man is 90 years old at this point and is one of the last great experimentalists, but as a dream of the lust for power, it’s furiously just out of reach. You can feel the energy, but you cannot ever tap into it, because it isn’t real and is all gone into the past. Such a pity. Oh well.
Most Valuable Asset: Super gay and insane.
Most Excited For: Puce Moment.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Definitely.
Coming Up Next: 80s teen king John Hughes.
