Very much in tune with his silk-screened images.
12 October 2000 | by (Edmonton, Ab.) – See all my reviews

Kiss is a series of 3 1/2 minute silent films of various people kissing. These short films are strung together to make a longer film. There is man & women kissing, women & women, man & man etc... Kiss is one of Warhol's first films, but can really call the completed work a film, or is it a series of short films. You see when trying to analyze Warhol's work, there is a mountain of films he created and the names associated to them are names given to differentiate reels of film, not neccesarely a title given to a complete and finished project. So is Kiss a film or is it a series of mini films? What is known is that Warhol compiled these short films and named it Kiss. Kiss is very much an extension of his silk screen artworks, you looking at Warhol's early film such as Empire, and Sleep, these films have repetitive images of someone sleeping and a static shot of the Empire state building, so one can say his silk screened artworks are very similar. The similarities are that they are the same images your watching, but with slight variations from one to the next. In this case Kiss is a fine example of Warhol's fascination with repetition. But only that, Kiss is NOT a underground masterpiece, but interesting because of the man who made it.
