“Time After Time” is pornography for New Agers. You know the ones.
They think there is wisdom in a grain of sand and that crystals hold magical powers. This film is made for them. As for the rest of us, it’ll serve as a cure for insomnia.
Nature images from Ireland, North America and Australia are combined with traditional music, songs and poems to provide a relaxing glimpse into the spiritual and cultural past of ancient peoples. After three minutes of this, you’ll be wondering what’s the point of it all. By minute seventy-six you’ll no longer care. You’ll just be glad it’s over.
This film is described as “an astonishing feat of true artistry” on the back of the DVD case. To quote the lyrics of a musician who isn’t a crystal clutcher, “Don’t believe the hype.”
