Drawing Restraint 9





This movie is a masterpiece.

Director Matthew Barney has been creating a series of "Drawing Restraint" since 1987, in which he plays a man wishing to break free and draw paintings on the ceiling of the room using different methods with added resistence...

Drawing Restraint 9, Shot in Nagasaki Bay Japan, illustrates all sorts of human's self-imposed resistences & restraints using metaphors such as culture, language, whale hunting, ceremonies and costumes... Even skin & flesh are restraints for Matthew Barnet and his partner Bjork to show their love & desires for each other... and you can witness the restraints being "removed".

Unfortunately, almost all of Matthew Barney's work are funded by a group of rich "art collectors" and classified as "art", rahter than movie... thereofore there will be no cinema & DVD releases... I was lucky to be able to watch this beautiful movie in 2005 Auckland International Film Festival.

Hello Stuart, all the copyrights of the movies by this director is owned by a group of rich art collectors, so there's no cinema or DVD release... you can only watch it in film festivals :(

Don’t let addiction take over your life. You can get eating disorder treatment today. Turn to someone who can help.

When our practice got started we needed correctional billing services help. These were the guys we turned to and they did a great job.
