:: New York illustrator Peter Stults :: takes contemporary movie titles and jams them into the Hollywood back catalogue, mixing time and narrative in a strange parallel cinematic universe.
Given the iconography he has assembled and the references they undoubtedly conjure from the careers of those referenced and the scenarios their screen persona signifies, it is little wonder one experiences an odd collapsing of cultural markers when viewing these posters.
It also makes one wonder about the paradox of originality: Isn’t what makes these remixes work is the uncanny resemblance to real cinematic history? As Hollywood remakes the past with the icons and language of the contemporary universe what is lost in the translation? Is American cinema just a stylistic exercise in visual pastiche? How will this present fetish with the remake, the prequel and the cheap satire be decoded in the cinema of the next century?
