    This was a book I used to stealthily pick up and thumb through back in the 80s when it could be found in cult bookstores, all shiny and new Poverty struck as I was then, I never actually BOUGHT it, or indeed, READ it I just gasped at the pictures and there were plenty to gasp at Now that the subject of Old Hollywood is truly obsessing me, I finally purchased a copy Time hasn t been kind Kenneth Anger was a trail blazer in the 60s with his bitter brand of celebrity reportage Perez Hilton owes a debt to him but the truth is that Anger s photo library is the best thing about this book, his sequel to the original bestseller The pictures promise SO much in Hollywood Babylon II a promise I had clung to since the 80s but the text doesn t quite deliver The most tantalising snapshots, with their accompanying barbed captions, suggest gob smacking tales of disillusion and tragedy But in too many cases this is all we get suggestion Too few of the photographs are backed up with any actual story What text that is provided at least starts out terrifically with the chapters on killer Paul Kelly, the Pantages frame up, and Joe Kennedy s disgusting skulduggery all of which are fascinatingly sordid tales I confess I knew nothing about But after that, much of the book is devoted to a catalogue of celebrity suicides To call this depressing reading barely touches the sides It was here I realised that Anger loathes his subjects There s no humanity to this section There isn t even any humour He celebrates the self destruction of people whose only crimes, truth be told, was that they possessed the aspiration to make something of themselves, however deluded that might have made them Several of these stories I had encountered before in other books Charles Boyer s tragic end, when I first read of it in Jeanne Basinger s The Star Machine , left me near tears, frankly He was an actor I ve always loved and I had no idea of how life had played out for him None of that for Hollywood Babylon II I guess I ve moved on I can appreciate Old Hollywood camp as much as the next man, but I ve come to love these people and their legacy too much to share Anger s callousness.

    What makes the subject mattter of old Hollywood is not the subject itself, but how Kenneth Anger tells the tales Are they true Is this history Are they made up Maybe a combination of all above, but who cares It s Kenneth Anger s Hollywood Babylon and in a sense it is a life blood to an art form and culture that he loves and hates Without a doubt, Anger is probably the greatest living American filmmaker alive It s film history filtered through his sensibility via his film work and the Hollywood Bablylon series.Vol 1 is the masterpiece, and vol.2 sort of picks up the missing pieces but both are essential for the personal film library.

    Obsession, sex, all the chemical dependencies ever thought of in the place you expect them to beHollywood It seemed to be somewhat of a voyeuristic look into the dreams and ambitions of vibrant people who fall into these seedy alley nightmares of Hollywood Babylon Even though it does not glamorize Hollywood in the least, I wanted to see that the people that are idolized in society so much are just as troubled, maybe even than everyone else It was good reading for those who like a little disgust in their Hollywood news

    27 100Das zweite Buch besteht zu 25% aus Wiederholungen aus dem ersten Teil, wirklich neu ist das Gejammer ber das heruntergekommene verkokste Hollywood der 1980er und m nnliche Stars, die nach zu viel Schnee keinen mehr hochkriegen Ja, fr her war alles stilvoller und die Stars nat rlich sch ner Ein humpelnder Nachklapp zu ersten Teil.

    The sequel to my 2013 naughty cruise read for my 2014 cruise More of the best in Old Hollywood gossip, in Anger s inimitable style The concluding chapter on Ronald Reagan is a fittingly sobering end to the trajectory of the two volumes tales That should be required reading for anyone nostalgic for the political icons of the 1980s Sadly, the tragic Chords of Fame have continued to play on for far too many in and out of Hollywood in subsequent years, despite the cautionary tales of their forebears.

    Meh After the excellent first book, this one comes off as a less interesting cash in Anger even re tells some stories he mentioned or told in detail in the first book There s still a lot of great information and awesome photos, but the meat of the book is considerably weaker than the original Holly Baby.

    Perhaps Anger need money I did not see the interest to write a suite to Hollywood Babylone.I found this concentrate of gossip boring Curiously, here, the choice of each history clarifies the brittleness of these artists It is better than than I feared But it is not upsetting If you do not have anything to read on the beach

  9. says:

    Better than the first Hollywood Babylon because the stories are much reflective Anger writes longer and page turning articles here, perhaps because he s writing about scandals that are not quite as well known as those from the first book However, caveat lector this is still a compendium of gossip and and there are a couple of horribly gory photos.

    Plut t un 2,5 J ai eu l impression que Kenneth Anger raclait les fonds de tiroir pour trouver de nouvelles anecdotes Et sur le dernier tiers, consacr aux suicides, on dirait parfois une rubrique n crologique avec 2 lignes de texte, parfois une photo, et la date de la mortCela dit, il y a quand m me quelques petites histoires savoureuses et beaucoup de photos.
