KORINE INTERVIEWS KENNETH ANGER

Legendary experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger recently sat down for an interview done by none other than Harmony Korine. Interview Magazine were the hosts. You can find the full article in the hard copy of the magazine and also on their website here. An excerpt is shown below:

KORINE: Do you feel like there’s any type of magic to Los Angeles still? Is it as interesting as old Hollywood?

ANGER: Uh, no. [laughs] I hate to say that, but the past was much more fascinating. I don’t particularly care for any of the current crop of actors. I don’t particularly care for any of the current crop of directors. But I have a lot of friends who are editors, and there are a lot of technical things going on here that are interesting.

KORINE: What about your dreams? Can you remember your dreams?

ANGER: I try to remember them, and occasionally I’ll make a note or two in a notebook if it’s something extra interesting. They do mean quite a lot to me, and they don’t happen all that often. In other words, I don’t have some kind of loud, Technicolor dream every night. But a few times a month, I’ll have a rather interesting dream. They’re mostly visual—oddly enough, I don’t have much dialogue in my dreams. They just don’t speak. [laughs]
