    The title is wrong!! It shoud be THE ORDER.

    Great DVD! However, this DVD is only one section of Cremaster 3, titled The Order. The Order itself is only 30 minutes in length. Additional footage can be seen through multi-angle viewing, accounting for the stated running time of 2.5 hours. So don't be mislead, this is NOT the entire fim of Cremaster 3.

    For the conceptual art lover.

    Matthew Barney has secured his place in art history. His Cremaster series, consisting of five films, uses the narrative cinema form to deliver a layered discourse of a unique brand of conceptual art. The Order, which is set in New York City's Guggenheim Museum, is presented as a game of ascendance both physically and metaphorically. It makes reference to the media frenzy from which it is born as well as to Barney's artistic influences, most notably through his on-screen praise and subtle mocking of the great minimalist artist Richard Serra. Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle films are vivid, complex and referential, while the narrative content can sometimes be somewhat less than apparent, the conceptual elements are consistantly strong.
