Pure sleaze, but even though it's non-stop weirdness it's also fairly boring. But damned if I didn't grow to like it by the end.
The thing about this movie is that there is thought behind all the trashiness, with themes exploring the perennial question, "What is art?" and the constant struggle between critics and artists. For all its exploitation, it's oddly also a movie that you could have hours of intellectual discussions about. And it has some incredibly funny moments, too.
