My favourite Barney "film". I'm not a huge fan of the other ones, but this one is the first I saw. Quite memorable as a piece of art more than a "film", which I'm sure is how Barney intended.

Unfortunately this fascinating, highly artistic series, or "cycle", of 5 films from performance artist Matthew Barney isn't available on DVD or any form of video (and never will). Covering a range of subjects using symbolic imagery and characters. If you get a chance to see the series do a little research on it and Matthew Barney beforehand. I saw this series a few years ago. Want to see it again.

It's not really possible to review this film - certainly not in comparison to any other film - because it's not, it's artwork. As a film it makes no sense, but as art, well, it's probably a masterpiece. There are some incredible scenes; beautiful colours and sets, and fitting music. Three hours with no real speech, other than the odd spot of singing, doesn't make it easier to understand, but speech would have totally ruined the eerie atmosphere. There are shocking moments, amusing moments, disturbing moments and, of course, lots of very, very weird moments! This film makes Lynch's "Mulholland Drive" look decidedly normal, and Bunuel's "Phantom of Liberty" - pah! - completely linear! Director Michael Barney has certainly achieved what he set out to achieve, and for that I can only give this the thumbs up!

Great Movie. Amazing Visuals. it's a must see. It's a bit screwed up, but I love it!
