Screening in 35mm as part of the series The Influences of David Lynch!

In this ingeniously comical film, Jacques Tati's amiably oblivious Monsieur Hulot grapples with the ultramodern "conveniences" of his brother-in-law's automated home. MON ONCLE transports the loveably gauche old world M. Hulot into the clutches of post-war France and its infatuations with modernist architechture, materialism, and technology.  Through his tightly choreographed poetic minimalism, Tati is one of the great masters of slapstick comedy and a tremendous influence on the humor of David Lynch.
