I'm not sure if it's really about a chrome trash can, but there's this movie I remember watching when I was a kid and I have no idea the name of it. There's this guy, he's like artistic or something and he buys a really shiny chrome trash can, puts it in his apartment and people come over and they just stare at it! Lots of scenes are complete silence and its just this fixation on that trash can.
If this sounds familiar to anyone who's seen it and knows the title, please please please tell me! I want to watch it again. Its just impossible to find it any other way. no one i know seems to know what the heck im talking about.
