Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon (1991) is a documentary by Nigel Finch based on Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon. It features Kenneth Anger himself.

It features Marianne Faithfull who talks about her relationship to Anger before singing "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams".

It is part of the Arena tv series.

"Nigel Finch’s ambitious documentary uses Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon as its keystone to build a film about Anger’s life, his movies, his interest in Hollywood and its stars’ scandalous lives. But what is evident amongst all this is that Anger is too big a genius, too complex a character to be fitted in between dramatic reconstructions of Fatty Arbuckle, and tales of Hollywood death and disaster. Though there are some excellent moments, the documentary teases the viewer, leaving an unfulfilled desire to know more about the great Magus of Cinema. Still, it’s worth the price of admission, if only to catch Kenneth Anger on film." --Paul Gallagher
