Tongue in Chic uses both pornography and a spoof of the filmic devices
of Andy Warhol, Barbara Hammer
and Bruce Weber to examine experimental film styles in the last few decades. It points to the way in
which “experimental” film styles have been co-opted by commercial
media production, freeing the form from the content in a way that
renders it meaningless.
