A Guy Sits And Eats
7 August 2002 | by (Hollywood, USA) – See all my reviews

EAT is a guy sitting on a couch and eating what looks like bread rolls for more than half an hour. It's black and white and silent. If you've never seen one of Warhol's experimental films, this one might be a good place to start, but it might turn you off from seeing any more of them. Still, it's something you wont forget soon, it's a lot like the films from the 1890's just showing someone doing something mundane, except it goes on a lot longer. But art it is.
