A History of the Future...
20 September 2016 | by JonathanWalfordSee all my reviews

Interesting documentary about the origin, outlook, and future of the Steampunk movement.

On the bad side, the film makers bombard the viewer with flash interviews over a constant soundtrack with little explanation as to who these people are. Also, tying the history of the movement to recognizable films, books, etc. over the past thirty years would have helped to understand how the movement grew.

On the good side, the message of why Steampunk is still here is the most interesting of the entire doc -- it is an antidote to contemporary technology - it humanizes the world we live in without voiding the warranty because you opened it up to see how it works.

Well worth 70 minutes to watch.
