I don’t even know why I really like this film…maybe it’s because I’m having such a hard time getting past the surface of any form of art and “Brief Interviews of Hideous Men” so effortlessly achieves this. The expository NYU writing classes are all about exploring the tensions that arise in works such as writing, art, or film, and then finding why the work is significant through the questions they pose. In our assignments we compare works with other works, we describe, we research, and I can do all that…but I can never seem to get past all the details.

Seori told me what steampunk is and now i’m in love. It’s metals, rust, steam, and machinery, all with intricate victorian design. It’s the future dreamed up by the past.
