The Cremaster Cycle
This weekend, UNM's SouthWest Film Center is breaking out all five segments of experimental filmmaker Matthew Barney's infamous "Cremaster Cycle." The films were shot (in no particular order) between 1995 (Cremaster 4
) and 2002 (Cremaster 3
). These films could very well be the slickest, most expensively produced experimental art ever made. But I dare you to sit through all 400 minutes of Masonic symbolism, Celtic legend, interpretive dance, dental surgery and speculative Gary Gilmore history. It's impressive stuff, but it makes my eyes, ears and brain hurt. R.
