Video: Lucifer Rising by Kenneth Anger, 1972

Youtube description: The film was completed in 1972 but was only widely distributed in 1980. Anger began filming around 1966, hiring a young musician named Bobby Beausoleil to act and compose the soundtrack. The film was abandoned in 1967 because Anger claimed the film footage had been stolen by Beausoleil. (Beausoleil and others said that Anger had simply spent all the money for the film.) Anger began filming again several years later, with British singer Marianne Faithfull appearing in the film. Chris Jagger, brother of Mick Jagger, was originally slated for the role of Lucifer.
