Storyline

How does artist Matthew Barney use 45,000 pounds of petroleum jelly, a factory whaling vessel and traditional Japanese rituals to create his latest art project? Barney plowed the waters off the coast of Nagasaki to film his massive endeavor, Drawing Restraint 9. The documentary Matthew Barney: No Restraint journeys to Japan with Barney and his collaborator Bjork, as the visual artist creates a "narrative sculpture" telling a fantastical love story of two characters that transform from land mammals into whales.

Guided art meditation
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A really gorgeous piece that works as a guided meditation of images. There is a thin sequence of events that you could call a narrative but that is merely a vehicle for the strong visuals. The pacing of the movie is purposely slow.

The film seems to revolve around the Shinto nuptials of a foreign couple on a whaling ship. The setting as well as the ceremony transforms the couple after their 'commitment' solidifies their union.

This is definitely a movie to be seen and reflected on. Imagages from the movie will continue to pop up long after you forget the logical sequence of events which attests to the primal nature of the work itself.
