    This film provides much to ponder. The skyscraper is an interesting way to frame the film as a whole. Interesting how the museum of the future was ‘coming soon’. You can’t see the future because it hasn’t happened yet. The whole thing seems like a sort of dream-like future where everything’s done in a very antisocial way. I’d like to hear how other people view this short.
