Andy Warhol's Nude Restaurant which was probably directed by Paul Morrissey. (You can tell by the Jump cuts which were done by turning off the camera and turning it back on causing a streak of white to come on accompanied with a bleep.)A Paul Morrissey way of editing out the boring stuff, well he should have done it for the whole film. In this film there is none of the aesthetic of Warhol's early still films (Kiss, Blowjob), nor any of the Great improvised scenes Morrissey was able to get out of Joe Dallesandro in the Trash, Heat, Flesh, Films. Instead what we see is Viva talking about various inane things, and later playing a coy Waitress that makes out with Alan Midgette. Taylor Mead is the only worthwhile person to see, poking his famous face into the frameline any chance he can. Ingrid Superstar makes her appearance, topless (another one nonetheless). This film is a transitional film, middleground between Warhol's style (boring), and Morrissey's story structured influence starting to show. It would be another few like I' a Man and Bike boy, Lonesome Cowboys and a few others before we would see Flesh, a Narrative film unlike any other previously to come out of the factory.
