“Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” – Trailer

“Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke’ is undeniably entertaining, whether you get the cultural references or not. It is a smart and intricately self-reflexive example of what cultural theorist Jim Collins has called ‘the perpetual circulation and recirculation of signs that form the fabric of postmodern cultural life.’ Mayer and her collaborator are quintessential bricoleurs. In ‘Uncle Luke,’ street-credible slang and classic booty beats reconstruct a landmark of film history. High and low, art and entertainment, fiction and reality become multiple facets of an intellectually-integrated work that specifically depends on cultural quotation. The parallels are both narrative and structural. Whereas ‘La Jetee’ is constructed from stills, referencing the psychological relationship between photography and memory, ‘Uncle Luke” draws from the nostalgia power of Mayer’s two dimensional boards.” – Art Papers
