We examine effects of small-scale fluctuations with angle in the neutrino radiation in core-collapse supernova explosions. As the mode number of fluctuations increases, the results approach those of spherical explosion. We conclude that global anisotropy of the neutrino radiation is the most effective mechanism of increasing the explosion energy when the total neutrino luminosity is given.
