Kenneth Anger's avant-garde short film that about gay Nazi bikers preparing for a race. Scorpio Rising represents the culmination of nearly twenty years' worth of Anger's work on unfinished, lost, or destroyed projects; it resonates with the thrill and energy Anger discovered as he mingled with young Americans on the beaches and under the boardwalk at Coney Island. Cagle reads Anger's film intertextually, bringing together a corpus of materials that includes Anger's pre-1963 works, feature films, pop music, and popular cultural icons.
