    Reader comments on The Cremaster Cycle

    Subject: guys, you have to remember...
    Date: Feb 23, 2005
    Sender: H.Previous | Next

    a movie is not what its about, its HOW its about it. style is much more important than substance. you dont look at a painting of a flower by van gogh and think to yourself "why is this a painting of a flower?" because you know why: its a beautiful image, and its done in a stylish way. the same can be applied to film, such is the case with the cremaster cycle. of course you can go digging for meaning and symbolism, but thats not necessary to enjoy it, i dont think.
