The Nude Restaurant – Viva (1967) Andy Warhol – Clip by Film&Clips

Directed by Andy Warhol, with Brigid Berlin; Julian Burroughs; Taylor Mead; Allen Midgette; Ingrid Superstar
USA, 1967

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). 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…

In un ristorante di poche pretese e pochi clienti tutte le regole e le convenzioni borghesi vengono capovolte o abbattute. Niente abiti per i clienti, niente divise per i camerieri, tutti sembrano essere piuttosto a proprio agio e questa libertà anche di costumi (o abiti!) permette ai vari personaggi di lasciarsi andare alle proprie memorie, angosce, confessioni.

  1. Does an "Art film" really need a plot line? Of course not especially when you have someone as charismatic and "natural" as VIVA. Even VIVA herself could not tell you what her technique was, because there wasn't any. This isn't acting at all. It is pure modeling and personality exposure. Thank you Andy Warhol. No one will ever be able to imitate your films
