Cremaster 2 (1999)

Cremaster 2 (1999)
- Matthew Barney -

The story of Gary Gilmore inspires much of the film while the visuals/set pieces are often curiously perplexing as well as lavish, evocative at times of David Lynch or Alejandro Jodorowsky, and worthy of viewing on the big screen. Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo even makes an appearance. Currently this is my favorite of the cycle.

One of the best descriptions I've read about this film comes from Latheman-9 on their IMDb review. They sum up the review with - "Very artsy and a bit overwrought, Cremaster 2 is the kind of work one expects from Barney.Rating: 6/10."
