Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Nathan Lee, Village Voice
"Lady Gaga's vids and maybe even Katy Perry's Betty Boop surrealism are more fun, less pretentious and shorter."
‑ James Verniere, Boston Herald
"Undeniably the work of a unique artistic vision."
‑ Richard Knight, Knight at the Movies
"The six and a half hours of Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle is sheer movie tedium, inert and unmoving, broken up by imagery that's more irritating than fascinating in its self-indulgent preciosity."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"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."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, DCist
