The End of Time

In Conversation

  • Michael Fox is a Bay Area–based film critic and journalist who regularly teaches a course on documentary film.

Recalling the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker . . . The End of Time becomes immersive and hypnotic . . . a ravishingly beautiful experience.

Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

In this meditation on time and perception, Mettler travels the world and turns the eye of his camera toward filming the unfilmable. From his visit to the CERN particle accelerator in Switzerland to lava flows in Hawaii to the urban decay of Detroit to a Hindu funeral ceremony, Mettler’s film essay is both personal and poetic; it reveals his fascination with the human condition and his appreciation of the mysteries of the cosmos.
