Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's easy to mock some of these platitudes, and it's to Mr. Mettler's credit that he never does. His questions are answered with more questions, because words seem ultimately useless in his query."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"Funny how a film that explodes our conventional notions about time should be so up-to-date with the news."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Mettler is fascinated by the slow process of natural decay, and how much of it is caused by human neglect or interference."
‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
"It leaves you without the net of linear temporality, frightened and freed by the implications."
‑ Eric Hynes, Time Out New York
"[I]t's about a series of seemingly disconnected topics linked by an abstract idea, and by a certain exploratory spirit."
‑ Jonathan Romney, Film Comment Magazine
"In painting such a densely existential picture of us all, [Mettler] ultimately engages no one."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space

‑ Calum Marsh, Village Voice
"A scientific/philosophical/religious meditation on Time. That's something you don't see in a movie theater routinely, all the more compelling since it is visually rewarding as well."
‑ Louis Proyect,
