Description: Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale is said here as a digital theater piece. The visual mission of departure is fashioned by découpages created by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, who is also the narrator.

Description: This is a mesmerising tiny short that employs a peculiar bird’s eye view of a mischievous devil who dances around, performing strange tricks and making sexy ladies appear out of nowhere. The colorful visual results are very impressive for the time.
Description: This is quite unlike most of the movies in the set, with a Biblical setting rather than a fairy story. It’s also rather graphically violent, depicting the martyrdom of Christians from the Bible. In one sequence boys are eaten alive by lions, with guts on display.
Description: This is other short, easy dance number. It’s quite stunning and unusual though with a bat turning into a girl who proceeds to give us a skirt dance before disappearing into thin air. The dance is mesmerising with the skirt stunningly changing colour throughout the film.

In the first film, Jasmine has become frustrated with the duties of being a princess, and longs for a life outside of the palace.

The lack of an essential component won't let a breakthrough. Only AUN, Sekai's son, seems to keep the key to protect mankind from self-destruction.

Description: "Chases within chases. A mother runs after a child. A boy … seems to be pursuing himself. A girl who has been nibbling her lipstick through half of the movie is pursued by a man. The pursuit of art is represented by a painter daubing at a landscape in an empty frame." –TDOTS Scrambled Alice in Wonderland with brutiste track. Pierre Schaeffer (musique concrete) threatened to sue. –UbuWeb
Description: Mickey Rooney plays a weary old thief who befriends a young child. Home for Christmas is a 1990 Canadian made movie about a young woman (Chantellese Kent) who wants a grandfather for Christmas. She chooses an elderly, homeless ex-con (Mickey Rooney) as her pseudo-grandfather and he teaches her - and her family - the real meaning of Christmas. Somewhat predictable.. but has a nice plot twist about half method through that keeps it interesting. A solid, low-key performance by Mickey Rooney as the seemingly broken down homeless boy saves this one from drowning in it's own mushiness.
Description: From the superb stage deep in the river Rhine that opens the opera, up to the magic Rainbow Bridge that appears at the end, leading to a glistening Valhalla, Otto Schenk’s production captures the scenic globe of Wagner’s Ring as brilliantly as James Levine and the Met orchestra capture the musical world. The cast is incomporable: an astounding James Morris as the young god Wotan, the nice Christa Ludwig as his wife Fricka, incandescent Siegfried Jerusalem as Loge, the wily god of fire, and Ekkehard Wlaschiha as a complex Alberich.
Description: A man-hungry suburban girl feels frustrated since she lives in the home of her prudish aunt and cousin, who interrupt and criticise her amorous liaisons.

Matthew Barney's "Cremaster 4" is an perfect example of what can be achieved in the zone of video art. "Cremaster 4" includes no verbal dialogue, but exists purely in the visual (with audio accompaniment). While not made with the budget and means of perhaps Barney's soon "Cremaster 3," "Cremaster 4" is a successful enveiling of different processes that reference problems of gender and masculinity, sports, and Barney's own mythology/ iconography. I trust what makes Barney's work so significant is his dealing with problems from contemporary American culture that artists previously either rejected or deemed unworthy as topics material. While the Cremaster cycle of films most directly deals with masculinity (the cremaster is found in the scrotum and is the muscle which is responsible for raising and lowering the testicles), Barney also manages to weave in his own commentary on sports (he played football at Yale), video minigames (see the Guggenheim sequence in "Cremaster 3"; it's self-explanatory), and gender ambiguity. Barney has a keen eye for striking images. The melody provided by Jonathan Bepler suits Barney's movies very well. If you like evocative images, cryptic sequences of events, and can tolerate the occasionally disturbing, I highly suggest "Cremaster 4."
The Cremaster Cycle 9/10 The Cremaster Cycle is a series of five movies shot over eight years. Although they can be seen individually, the greatest experience is seeing them all together (like Wagner's Ring Cycle) - and also researching as much as you can beforehand. To give you an concept of the magnitude, it has been recommended that their fulfilment confirms author Matthew Barney as the most necessary American artist of his generation (New York Times Magazine).The Cremaster movies are works of art in the sense that the critical faculties you test whilst watching them are ones you might more normally test in, say, the Tate Modern, than in an art house cinema. They are entirely made up of symbols, have only the slimmest of linear plots, and experiencing them leaves you with a sense of awe, of more questions and inspirations than closed-book answers. The imagery is at once grotesque, beautiful, challenging, puzzling and stupendous. Any review can only hope to touch on the significance of such an event, but a several clues might be of interest, so for what it's worth ...Starting with the title. The 'Cremaster' is a muscle that acts to retract the testes. This keeps the testes warm and protected from injury. (If you hold this in mind as you view the piece it will be easier to search another clues and create sense of the myriad allusions to anatomical development, sexual differentiation, and the period of embryonic sexual development - including the period when the outcome is still unknown. The films, which can be viewed in any order (though chronologically is probably better than numerically) range from Cremaster 1 (most 'ascended' or undifferentiated state) to Cremaster 5 (most 'descended'). The official Cremaster site includes useful synopses.)Cremaster 4 is closest to the biological model and so sets the scene, suggesting the system's onward rush. There is a motorcycle race and a Candidate who is tap-dancing his method through the floor (weird? yes - but it is definitely art, not weird for weird's sake!)The Guggenheim Museum (which houses a parallel exhibition) describes the Cremaster Cycle as "a self-enclosed aesthetic system consisting of five feature-length movies that discover processes of creation." As film, the Cremaster Cycle is one to experience in the cinema if you have the occasion to do so, or to experience and re-experience at leisure on DVD (the boxed set is promised for late 2004 and will be a gem for lovers of art-cinema fusion).
I liked this Cremaster film the best. First of all, it's great and short. Second, the visual imagery is simple, yet interesting, not the overkill of Cremaster 3. Lastly, it's probably the most "fun" of the Cremaster movies to watch (if you can describe any of them as fun). There's no plot, of course, and it's extremely pretentious, but it held my attention for all 42 minutes, and I'd suggest it as a stand-alone art film. 8 out of 10.
