I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Here's some Anger anyone here will enjoy.

In 1978, Anger re-cut his landmark 1954 film, Inauguration Of The Pleasure Dome by several minutes as well as changing the score of the film he had previous selected, Glagolitic Mass by the Czech composer Leoš Janáček. This re-constructed version, offered here today features Anger's choice of the 1974 Electric Light Orchestra album, 'Eldorado' as score. This edition of the film would be labeled by Anger as his "Sacred Mushroom Edition". Anger successfully screened this E.L.O. version of the film at the 1978 Boston Film Festival. This festival exhibition would be the only time in history this version of Anger's film had been seen, until now.

Ive seen everything in the poll (and nothing else, if there is more). I dont particularly remember which one was which, but thought the one with the motorcycle and songs such as "Blue Velvet" playing was the best.

Went through his filmography about two years ago in a desperate grab to get into the top 100 on Icheckmovies (I know, I know...) and was watching one or two films from the Breif Encounters list a day. Found a lot better discoveries in that list, but thought all the Anger stuff was ok to not so great but interesting. If I could remember which film was which my list would be 2/5s and 3/5s
