Cremaster 2

The story of Gary Gilmore, if it were told by super-intelligent bees. Matthew Barney’s Cremaster movies are a cycle of five films that explore the visual limits of cinema. In this episode, an arena made of salt, a vocalist covered in bees, Harry Houdini and two cars linked by a tunnel of flesh combine to intimate a story about murder, growth and the pain of sexual differentiation. It’s not really a narrative, though there’s a bit of that, but more of an exploration of imagery, and an attempt to see what else can be done with film. In that regard, it’s a great success, and opens up a seemingly unlimited range of possibilities beyond those already explored by Hollywood filmmakers, European auteurs and the indie and art-house set.
