In the first of these two films, Pop artist Robert Indiana is depicted during the act of eating, adhering to the minimal style and silent speed of other films such as Kiss, Blow Job, Empire, and Sleep. The second, The Nude Restaurant, portrays a group of male customers and a female waitress, all of whom are nearly nude. Over the course of the film, the group engages in mundane conversation, punctuated only by Warhol’s camera strobing work, giving the film an uneasy tenor.
