"The story [of "CREMASTER 3"] has two principals, the Architect and the Mason's Apprentice...The Architect, who's played by Richard Serra, is shown sort of as himself in the game, throwing Vaseline on the top of "Level Five." And he's throwing hot Vaseline in exactly the same way that he threw hot lead in the late '60s."
