Pompous.

A series of films, in one 20 DVD collection, that was rarely printed, selling for $100,000 a piece. I'm not rating these films because I havent seen them - how could i? How could anyone? Art's integrity and value isnt defined by the lack of people viewing it.

Matthew Barney must think he's a true genius, or maybe just a swindler. Either way, i wouldnt go for free to one of his 'art instillations' showing off these movies because i dont want to be accidentally influenced by his elitist vision of what art is supposed to be.
