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.

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.

Matthew Barney makes Peter Greenaway look like Joel Schumacher.

Lady Gaga's vids and maybe even Katy Perry's Betty Boop surrealism are more fun, less pretentious and shorter.

Undeniably the work of a unique artistic vision.

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.
