Cremaster by Matthew Barney

Cross between Performance Art and Cinema, the Cremaster Cycle is a series of five films directed by artist Matthew Barney. Matthew Barney’s filmmaking is abstract and there is little dialog in the Cremaster Cycle. The films communicate in a highly-symbolic language and the storylines can be hard to follow on the first viewing.

Cross between Performance Art and Cinema, the Cremaster Cycle is a series of five films directed by artist Matthew Barney. Matthew Barney’s filmmaking is abstract and there is little dialog in the Cremaster Cycle. In a surrealist (think Jean Cocteau) fashion, the films communicate in a highly-symbolic language. The storyline is hard to follow; just as it is in the disjointed dream sequences.
