Austin Kimmell’s review published on Letterboxd:
This better not AWAKEN anything in me.
Anger’s reclamation of mainstream Americana for the marginalized, just when the stranglehold was starting to loosen. It’s mere existence defies Hollywood, Christianity, and copyright culture, making the sights, sounds and subtexts of the 50’s bend to his will.
Beautifully textured and with a soundtrack full of bangers, Scorpio Rising is Anger at the start of his golden period - weaponizing what came before him to define the present and future.
