WOW !!! and Thanks !!
2 May 2004 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I would like to thank you and the whole team that made "Postcards from the future". I just finished watching it...and if seeing and reading Fight Club, Choke,...changed something in my life, watching your doc did also change many things. I may not ne aware of what it did change exactly, not for the moment at least, but I have this strange feeling of feeling a lot better. I haven't go the chance to meet Chuck or to attend to a reading or conference, so this documentary was such a huge shock, what a great surprise !!

I was finishing some color-grading on some stupid commercial stuff I had to do to be able to eat, took a break and BAAAMMM...wow...I'm sitting there thinking staring at this white wall I always thought I should put a poster on. It made me feel so good to be able to listen to Chuck and to his fans, made me almost feel less lonely here. This doc is so well made that I never had the impression that Chuck and his fans were talking to you the documentarist but actually to me.

Thanks to the great team that made it possible, and of course, thanks to Chuck. I never thought that a DVD about an author could actually change something in me, but it did. Many many people should see it.
