A Chocolate Faced Woman (VIDEO)

A ten minute video of a women lying down on her back in a bath tub, mouth open, being covered with chocolate sauce.  Only a tight closeup of her face is shown, as the chocolate syrup slowly rises.  Is this art?  Is it just plain weird?  At ten minutes, is it watchable?

 Andy Warhol made films of everyday activities that he called 'anti-film'.  Many, like his first film Sleep lasted for several hours and were called unwatchable by some. Clearly Chocolate does not represent an account of the everyday but the concept is reminiscent of Warhol.  This is not a knock, as I think Chocolate is an interesting if not fascinating study. 

You can also watch part 2 (which I think is the most beautiful) and part 3.
