Critic Reviews for Cremaster Cycle

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

  • Matthew Barney's humongous riff on struggle, reproduction, conceptual drag, and several dozen strands of narrative gobbledygook is undeniably something to be reckoned with--if only as a relic of the boom years in contemporary art.

  • Fear not, you really don't have to watch all five of these crazy films, or to even see them in order, to appreciate the brilliance and madness of Barney's creation.

  • Matthew Barney makes Peter Greenaway look like Joel Schumacher.

    Sep 16, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Undeniably the work of a unique artistic vision.

    Nov 3, 2010 | Full Review…
  • It's too easy (and inaccurate) to write these films off as willfully opaque art world pretension. This is challenging, formally audacious, uneven, and sometimes confounding work - as ambitious an undertaking for the viewer as it was for its creator.

    Oct 11, 2010 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…
  • Lady Gaga's vids and maybe even Katy Perry's Betty Boop surrealism are more fun, less pretentious and shorter.
