The most useless film ever made...
29 October 2001 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

Is normal to have curiosity about the attempts on cinema of such an interesting personality like Andy Warhol, but "Eat" is such an idiotic, boring and uninteresting film that any interest disappears. But well, after all it's an experimental film made by someone with real anxiety for discovering new ways of express his art.

"Eat" are 40 neverending minutes watching a man eating a mushroom (later a cat appears but basically that's the plot). A peace metaphor? A contemplative experience? 40 minutes of wasted celluloid? I'll let everyone be the judge.
