The Order. Film Version from Cremaster 3

As the central chapter of the five-part film series Cremaster, in The Order all narrative threads come together, what came before and what is to come. The main scene of action is the personified Chrysler Building in New York. Inside, forces battling against one another—embodied by Hiram Abiff, Richard Serra, and Matthew Barney—compete for access to spiritual transcendence.
