# Cremaster 3 by Matthew Barney

In 2002, Matthew Barney releases his third opus (out of five) for the Cremaster cycle (the cremaster muscle controls testicular contractions in response to external stimuli) in which he explores processes of creation. Barney is fascinated by the notion of constraint and always establishes a set of rules in order to create his work, similarly to the French Oulipo (Ouvroir de litterature potentielle).
Cremaster 3 explores the construction of the Chrysler Building and the very special ceremonial related to an apprentice's initiation. The second part of the movie dramatizes the same story but withing the Guggenheim which hosts a kind of initiative video game populated by strange characters and...Richard Serra.
It is difficult to talk about Cremaster since this movie is firstly a very hypnotic one thanks to its rhythm, its aesthetic and its characters' behavior.
