"Forget 'Hellboy.' 'Robot Stories' is the real deal -- a science-fiction with a brain and a heart." - Pittsburgh TribuneReview
Robot Stories' tagline is 'science fiction from the heart,' a phrase author and genre specialist Steven Schneider finds appropriate. Robot Stories plays differently from a lot of the science-fiction films I've seen,’ said Schneider, the author of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die... It made me reflect on science fiction's deep and long-standing romantic side. Greg is less interested in trying to pull the wool over our eyes by giving us something spectacular-looking than he is in exploring human relationships.’...In fact, 2004 may end up being American cinema's year of the robot, with Pak and his independent sci-fi movie getting the jump on Hollywood.”
- Jason Silverman, Wired
"Pak is an extremely gifted screenwriter, a fact you can confirm by reading Robot Stories and More Screenplays, which collects several short and two feature-length scripts, all with introductory notes....There’s a clear sense throughout that Pak is giving the writing of his movies the attention it deserves and, not only that, has a real gift for it. It’s a relief to see a young director relying so heavily on strong writing. Pak’s interests are too complex to be served by anything less...Pak’s robot stories ultimately challenge our assumptions about what we are doing as humans, as people, and with the lives and world we make." - Strange Horizons
