The film is definitely dystopian in outlook and falls into the [[dieselpunk]] genre. The devices used in the film show heavy wear as well as corrosion, suggesting that technological advancement has halted. The ocular implants are seemingly futuristic, but their art-deco styling and analog output are clearly anachronistic. Krank’s dream stealing machine and just about everything else in the lab of his floating fortress, are fitted with suction cups, vacuum tubes and pneumatic bladders.
