Cinema of splendour or 'be-numbed ego-centrism'? Martin Patrick, Thomasin Sleigh and Mark Amery review Matthew Barney's epic cine-opera River of Fundament. The pod discuss Barney's interplay between sculpture, cinema and visual art, his positions on gender and women, and his many references to celebrated figures of the 20th century avant-garde. Is this a film for our times? All this plus J Hoberman and James Lee Byars.
