Cinematic magician, legendary provocateur, author of the infamous HOLLYWOOD BABYLON books and creator of some of the most striking and beautiful works in the history of film, Kenneth Anger is a singular figure in post-war American culture. A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorsese, 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.

American writer and director Alistair Banks Griffin makes his feature debut with this beautifully haunting film. The story of two brothers who try to fulfill their dying mother's last wish. Griffin has a strong vision for haunting and beautiful images but his style overwhelms substance, specially in the story area. A more developed script would have made a big difference along with the solid cast and crew. The stunning cinematography by Jody Lee Lipes is outstanding and breath taking.
