Matthew Barney Presents: Donkey Kong.
Points for boobies and wacky hats. I love me some boobies and wacky hats.
To be more serious-
Cremaster as a whole series is pretty uneven- It has it's great moments, and some groaners -if I would criticize anything, he's a terrible film editor. That said, I'm not unhappy it exists.
I saw the Guggenheim show, and the set pieces from the films are, in many ways, BETTER as just sculptures than they are as set-pieces for the film (the bar in particular).
This segment is so clearly modeled after the general structure of video games - he's gotta make progress, solve a puzzle, fight/evade a boss, musical interlude between levels and there's Richard Serra as Donkey Kong pitchin' melted vaseline down the ramps...
and I really do like boobies and wacky hats.

Not a true Scotsman.

I'm sorry, but this was horrible. I can't believe how many people hyped up this Cremaster thing to me and when I finally saw it I felt so fucking duped. Absolutely terrible.

BUT IT'S HIGH ART! YOU JUST DON'T GET IT.
Yes, I do get it. Yes, it's still solipsistic crap.
Solipsistic or sophistry?
um, I think art gets a pass, for better or worse effect on being solipsistic.
I think you meant to say that you find this highly self-indulgent.
Yep. That happens in art a lot.

I can see that poe is too wise to be taken in by this so-called "art".

For a while I thought this was a self-indulgent scene from some 60s art movie but I guess it isn't?

I was a bit confused as to why nobody was singing "Christmas in Heaven" at first...
