Curtis Harrington - The Wormwood Star (1955)

"It’s certainly no slight to the late director Curtis Harrington to describe The Wormwood Star, his visually arresting 1955 portrait of occult artist/beatnik weirdo Marjorie Cameron as being 'Anger-esque' considering that he’d served as the cinematographer for Kenneth Anger’s Puce Moment and that it stars Cameron, one of Anger’s most well-known cinematic avatars (Cameron famously played 'The Scarlet Woman' in Inauguration of The Pleasure Dome and Harrington himself portrayed 'Cesare the Somnambulist' in that film."
