Critic Reviews for Matthew Barney: No Restraint
More interesting is Chernick's concise survey of Barney's intriguing early work, including weird Vaseline-covered sculptures and footage of him trying to draw while under physical restraints such as a harness, etc.

[Director] Chernick's stylish yet superficial report looks more like an orientation video for museum visitors.
Barney's art presents a cross between the creepiness of David Cronenberg and David Lynch and the grandiosity and business sense of George Lucas. Chernick's film unquestioningly admires it.
Alison Chernick's documentary attempts to provide some much-needed insight, combining a biographical and artistic portrait of the provocateur.
Audience Reviews for Matthew Barney: No Restraint
Fails to get you into Matthew Barney's mind, really; but it does show that Drawing Restraint 9 is very much an odd goose among the drawing restraint films (which, well, are otherwise understandable).
