Hey, here’s a sentence I never thought I’d be typing: PlayStation Network (and YouTube) user fluxlasers has set out to re-interpret the entirety of Matthew Barney’s cinema arthouse series Cremaster as a set of LittleBigPlanet levels.

Above, the Goodyear blimps and football stadium choreography of Cremaster 1, and below, fluxlasers’ rendition of the motorcycle sidecar races (and an appearance by Barney himself as the The Loughton Candidate) of Cremaster 4.

Fluxlaser Paul told the Cremaster Fanatics blog that he “plans to create levels based on all five Cremaster films. Once completed, he will incorporate all the levels into an area called The Cremaster Cycle where you start with Cremaster 4 and complete and unlock the levels in the same order the films were released. On the Cremaster 3 level there will be a hidden key which will unlock ‘The Order’ level.”

  1. I guess I’m just not sophisticated enough, but this kind of thing seems like absolute nonsense to me.

    I want to say the movies are completely unwatchable garbage but I understand some people enjoy the films so I’ll keep my mouth shut.



  3. Perhaps I’m ignorant, but how does one set out to recreate films of which only 20 copies were sold, and at $100k per set of copies?

    Is the creator rich, lucky, talented, and bored enough to qualify for owning the films AND producing these levels?

    Did they see the films when they were released, and recreate them from memory, instead?

    Baffling.
