“Time means we are,” one subject tells us midway through Peter Mettler’s latest globe-hopping, mind-bending essay film. It’s also what musicians manipulate when they let one note follow another; what a lone Hawaiian resists by living in a freestanding house surrounded by active lava flows; what nuclear physicists split in Geneva’s Large Hadron Collider; and what we watch when we go to the movies. And the end of time? That, Mettler suggests, has to be seen to be believed—in this case, by way of a bravura finale inspired by the director’s experiments with live image mixing. With its stunning footage, diverse subject matter, and surprising associations, The End of Time is on e of Mettler’s most accomplished reflections on humanity’s place within an unpredictable world.
