avant garde pioneer steals film
7 April 2006 | by Metor2See all my reviews

Anger has simply taken a videotape produced in the 1990s called SMOKE THAT CIGARETTE, added "Don't" and his name to it, and portrayed it as his own. He has shown it at film festivals as an original work, sold video copies, and now it appears in his flameproofs.

This is a far cry from the "ready-made" approach of, say, Joseph Cornell's "Rose Hobart," in which he took a section of EAST OF BORNEO (1931), printed it through a blue filter, and added insipid calypso records to the soundtrack.

His "Enfant Terrible" moniker truly applies here, because it takes a terrible child to sully a worldwide reputation for visual brilliance in films by appropriating another's work.
