The Bjork-Barney Enigma Machine

These kooky kids fascinate me. I am totally conflicted about seeing this film. Matthew Barney Mormon? I haven't seen any of his Cremaster films, but I hear there are a Mormon Characters and Symbols, etc in them. Maybe it's just because he grew up in Idaho. Or maybe it's another case of a hot dude abdicating his tribal duties!

PPS...isn't it funny how Napoleon Dynamite is set in Preston, ID...just about as Mormon a town as you can get, the star's Mormon, the Director and Writers are Mormon...but there are no OVERT references to Mormons in the movie? Like they wanted to totally avoid the topic. That's like setting a movie in Fallujah and acting like the locals are Eskimos.

The funniest thing about Napoleon Dynamite, was the Various "vintage" t-shirts. One for Ricks, another for Kanab or Richfield? And then the "catholics" wearing big crosses? The "sly" references cracked me up.
