Matthew Barney Movie

I thought that the movie was very... interesting. I thought some of the characters (the women as sheep) and the angry punks moshing around a cross worked towards a greater purpose however i did not understand Richard Serra shoveling or the giant plastic things. He used color and pattern and sound very effectivly to create an emotion. The industrial noise and the image of the goo was sickening. The silence caused the viewer to have to concentrate on the legless woman's uneven gait. I really did not like how repetitive everything was i think repetition would have been more effective if the purpose behind the piece was more obvious because it would have cemented the rhetoric in the viewer's head.
