  1. Interesting piece on life in a post 9/11 world. It seemed to me that the video expresses a confused attempt to understand this life through something common like cooking. It resonates with a society that is surely going through similar feelings.

  2. it keeps the attention of the viewer well even with the different clips playing over each other. the clips don’t distract from the subject they help it in a way.

  3. Audio is very cool. I love the satirical edge portrayed, although the relationship with spices was a bit confusing to some of the scenes.

  4. the variety of scenes overlapping work very well together. the content of the video is interesting with the close relationships between cooking and maybe society. Audio really helps connect with the visuals.
