Storyline

A filmmaker's inquiry into transcendence becomes a three-hour trip across countries and cultures, interconnecting people, places and times. From Toronto, the scene of his childhood, Peter Mettler sets out on a journey that includes evangelism at the airport strip, demolition in Las Vegas, tracings in the Nevada desert, chemistry and street life in Switzerland, and the coexistence of technology and divinity in contemporary India. Everywhere along the way, the same themes are to be found: thrill-seeking, luck, destiny, belief, expanding perception, the craving for security in an uncertain world. Fact joins with fantasy; the search for meaning and the search for ecstasy begin to merge. Written by Anonymous

dreary, pretentious, zzzzZZzzZZZzzzzZZzzz
17 February 2004 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

This was sooooo dull. Maybe Peter should have gotten a 2 hour clip of Telefilm Tax dollars blowing into the wind....

Was this even edited? It seemed like just source footage, or a rough assembly?

ouch.

The Canadian system of funding (telefilm, CTF et al.) has some serious issues if this is what they are paying for.

Well, at least after this any Egoyan film will seem "action-packed"
