Cremaster 5

Movie: Cremaster 5
Director: Matthew Barney
Produced by: Artangel
Released By: Palm Pictures
MPAA Rating:

The five in-progress avant-garde Cremaster films have been made out of sequence for a Guggenheim Museum showing of all five in the year 2000, Cremaster 5 is actually the third to be filmed. In number five, the Queen of Chains, wearing a glass dumbbell on her head, moves into the restored Budapest Opera House where she sings passionately of her lost love, later seen as a half-man/half-fish surrounded by pink mermaids. Her aria is in Hungarian, minus subtitles. The 51-minute musical fantasy, with a vid-to-film transfer, was made on a $200,000 budget. Also of note: The title refers to the set of minor muscles in the male anatomy that raise and lower the testes, in order to accomodate for temperature.
