Still eating the banana (or again?)
23 May 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is "Mario Banana II" and as the number in the title already tells you it is the sequel to a film with the same name also from 50 years ago. The writer and director here is Andy Warhol and the "star" is Mario Montez who is dressed in drag and lustfully eating a banana. I think this is the very same as the first film, it also runs for slightly over 3 minutes, and has Montez eat a banana again only this time it is all in black-and-white. But it stays equally tasteless and a failed attempt at sexual provocation. Plot is not existent, basically just like direction. Maybe film may not be the right medium for Warhol to express his ideas. At least these two very short films were a major disappointment and I highly recommend everybody not to watch this garbage.
