Apart from being an unusual filmmaker, Peter Mettler is also a filmmaker of the unusual. His apparently disorganized searches have a very firm core in which spectators are invited to find their place without the film explicitly guiding them to it. Mettler’s images are beautiful, but they’re not forced to be so -and his explorations are profound, but they don’t intent to present a theory (in other words, Mettler is not Kossakovsky or Farocki). Here, the idea is to summon different ways of conceiving the inexistence of time, a notion that’s entirely anti-intuitive and yet runs through territories as heterogeneous as sub-atomic physics, Buddhist meditation, and the loops in electronic music. A good deal of the pleasure in watching The End of Time is that the film builds a sensorial capsule inside which we can reflect on this idea that time doesn’t exist (or that it’s non-lineal and immeasurable) and sense that the evidence of death may not be, in the end, more than a convention imposed by industrial needs.
