Barney's The Entered Apprentice faces off against Chrysler Building architect Hiram Abiff (played by sculpture Richard Serra) in the Art Deco landmark, while battling punk bands, Rockette-like chorines, and a half-cheetah woman (Aimee Mullins) as he scales the atrium of the Guggenheim Museum in interlude.

On 3 November 2003 in the UK, an exclusive DVD of THE ORDER is released, the last sequence of CREMASTER 3, which marks the grand finale to the five films. Set in the Guggenheim Museum, THE ORDER represents the entire five-part CREMASTER CYCLE, and presents Matthew Barney as the tartan-clad Entered Apprentice in a death-defying race to the top of Guggenheim. On the way, he takes on legendary sculptor Richard Serra, who tosses molten Vaseline down the ramps, a pair of battling heavy-metal bands, a troupe of tap-dancers, and the ravishing model Aimee Mullins who transforms in to a cheetah-woman. THE ORDER marks the first release ever of Barney's film work on DVD, outside of the original priceless laserdiscs on display in the Guggenheim. Special features on the DVD include: an interactive multiangle video presentation of THE ORDER which enables multiangle navigation and an interactive experience which is the first of its kind in the contemporary art world; the composer Jonathan Bepler's 5.1 audio mix, which is an exclusive reworking; and the director's commentary, offering a fascinating insight in to Matthew Barney's vision.
