Storyline

Tongue-in-cheek, early Greenaway short reflects the incredibly meticulous encyclopedic nature of his early films. An attempt is made to "reconstruct" a proposed, but never made, film according to some reasonably vague directions. The attempt is made over and over because of conflicting interpretations of the instructions. Written by Mark Toscano <fiddybop@uclink4.berkeley.edu>

Greenaway claims that Tulse Luper is NOT his alter-ego and yet has invested to much time in documenting his life! Greenaway's conception and depth of understanding of Luper is incredible.
20 May 2004 | by (Warwick Uni) – See all my reviews

This film is awesome! The character of Tulse Luper is one which crops up in many of Greenaway's work (he has just finished a new exhibition at Compton Verney called '92 Suitcases' which expresses psychological and physical episodes in Luper's life. It's great). Greenaway insists that Tulse Luper is not his alter-ego or anything and yet they share loads of things in common.

Greenaway has invested so much of his artistic time on Luper and it is so interesting to watch this film in light of this. Patterns of authorship are fascinating in 'Vertical Features Remake'. See it and others!
