I *really* want to see this.Somebody on Metafilter mentioned Masonic elements in Matthew Barney's work. I didn't know he was a mason. But then, I don't know much about him. Seeing this trailer, though, makes me want to see the Cremaster cycle, which from what I understand is only shown in its entirety at art museums/theatres. I.e., you can't go down to Blockbuster and get a copy to watch at home. The Walker in Minneapolis just did the cycle last year or the year before, so I doubt I'll get to see it anytime soon.
The video store we frequent, albeit a local business that caters to a more art-oriented region of Edmonton, carries The Cremaster Cycle III. It was the last of the five he produced (Barney did them out of order). It is available for order; I know Palm Pictures is the DVD distro for it in North America.I also saw it in the theatre here (Pt III), though I do not recall which theatre. It may have been the local arthouse. The film was defintiely Freemason-inspired, and one of my favourite parts is the conflict of the east and west coasts, between Agnostic Front and Murphy's Law. That scene was the awesome.Overall, however, the series is a little drawn out. But he's an artist, he's allowed to be gratuitous, I suppose.
