In these early silent films, Warhol explores three different common bodily acts through a minimalistic framework. In Kiss, Warhol features thirteen different couples kissing, with each pair’s scene lasting the three or so minutes of an individual roll of film. Eat depicts Pop artist Robert Indiana slowly eating a mushroom. The film Blow Job, meanwhile, only implies the sexual act of its title. Warhol focuses the frame to a man’s face, showing his movements and reactions against a brick wall. Lit from above, the face is mostly cast in shadow.
