I can't say I fully understand the concept here. Andy Warhol films the faces of a variety of young friends, including Dennis Hopper, in complete silence and generally only for a few minutes. If you want to see a man's face in black and white for a few minutes without his words to distract you, this is the film for you.
If I understand correctly, Warhol thought of these films as paintings. And that would make sense, as the faces really are little more than paintings. They move a bit, but not enough to really be considered silent film. There's clearly no plot. It's an image, a frozen slice of time. Again, one of them is Dennis Hopper, which is pretty great for his fans, because aside from bit parts, he really didn't hit it big until 1969. This is a glimpse into his years on the brink of success.
