Not as "minimalist" as one would expect from Warhol
I was lucky enough to view this later Warhol film, at the Vienna, Austia film festival. Surprisingly and contrary to most reviews I had read, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Granted, I am studying art myself, but I found that Warhol was actually trying to make a point with this one. Most of the complaints for his films revolve around how long and boring they are; and this is justifiable. The same could be said about "Imitation..." as well, but here, I felt Warhol set up characters that had a sense of meaning and spoke about real issues; they weren't just babbling in a drugged-out stupor. Whether you enjoy his style of film-making or not, I think anyone can appreciate an artist making a statement about life.
