Need a Steampunk Fix?

Check out Franklyn, the directorial debut of Gerald McMorrow.

Franklyn is the mind-tripping tale of Emilia, Milo and Peter - three lost souls in present day London who are about to be thrown together when masked vigilante Jonathan Preest crosses over from his Steampunk dimension of Meanwhile City to their world. The story leaves a couple of loose ends dangling and doesn't always make total sense, but the sets in Meanwhile City are gorgeously, darkly Steampunkian, reminiscent of such films as Dark City and Hellboy, with a dash of Watchmen thrown into the plot.
