Mankind's numerous ways of measuring the passage of time through history are depicted through stop-motion animation, from ancient sundials to simple mechanical devices, up through complex modern timepieces.
The viewer is subjected to many exasperatingly long spans of unnarrated contemplation. It would help if the visual content had a direct bearing on the subject at hand or if it was shortened to 30 seconds or so. As for the interviews, the documentary seems to be throwing up various unrelated topics hoping one will stick and inspire you. At first, there are fascinating discussion with CERN scientists. That got my attention ( 3 stars for that). But you are then left hanging. Things devolve to interviews with people who don't seem to be using the few brain cells they have left. The perspective from eastern and aboriginal spirituality is brought out in the same drawn-out inept fashion. The ten-minute unnarrated psychedelic ending is laughable but a heartfelt opinion of an elderly woman closed this fiasco.
You have to be on serious drugs to bear to sit through the whole movie. They probably needed some to make such rubbish and then think highly of it.
A waste of my time.
