Storyline

At a New York City restaurant, the patrons are men, nude but for a G-string, waited on by one woman, also clad in a G-string (played by Viva) and a G-bestringed (bestrung?) waiter. Some of the "nude" patrons leave the establishment, their places taken by new customers, also nearly in the buff. There are numerous in-camera jump cuts (known as 'strobe cuts') and the camera weaves around a bit. The waiter and waitress move from table to table, talking to the customers. Taylor Mead sits smirking at the fountain, where eventually he partakes in a long conversation with Viva about her Catholic childhood. Viva, the waitress if not the actual person, seemingly is obsessed with the subject of lascivious priests. There is more strobe cutting and at one point, Viva turns to the camera and asks that it be turned off. The camera is turned off and, after an interlude, is turned back on again, after which Viva continues with her monologue. More patrons arrive while others go, perhaps thinking -- if ...

Quotes

Man in tub: Would you take a deserter into your house and hide him from the law?... If I can get your address perhaps I could talk to draft dodgers and other groups and tell them that you'll give them hospitality.
Harmonica Player: Oh, I won't give just anybody...
Man in tub: We need people who care... We want people who take an interest in our society and want to change it.
Harmonica Player: I want someone beautiful to live with.
Man in tub: Well, anyone who doesn't like war must be beautiful.
Harmonica Player: Not necessarily.
Man in tub: Well, I mean, perhaps we can send you pictures...

A Great Sixties Timepiece
7 August 2002 | by alexduffy2000See all my reviews

This movie consists of Warhol "Superstars" hanging out in a restaurant, wearing nothing but bikini underwear (men and women), and discussing random topics. There is no plot or script. Topics go back and forth, but the most interesting topic is the Vietnam War, it's 1967 and very real in the minds of the young people on screen, especially the young men. There's a dark, surreal, and desperate quality in the background of all of the banal conversations, the Vietnam War is going on, the Cold War is going on, what's next? Strange, colorful, and unforgettable, it's very dated, very sixties, but still compelling to watch.
