Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.06.14] Canada documentary



Documentary director Jay Cheel has been hard at work on his follow-up to the immensely entertaining Beauty Day (review) for a couple of years. The new documentary How to Build a Time Machine originally had a conspiracy theory element but as is bound to happen as you meet people and conduct interviews, the movie now focuses primarily on two individuals: Rob Niosi, a man who has spent years building a full-scale replica of the prop from the 1960's movie The Time Machine, and Ronald L. Mallett, a physicist who has dedicated his life to researching the real life scientific possibility of time travel.

If you've seen Beauty Day or any of Cheel's previous short projects, you'll be rewarded for your patience with more of the director's aesthetic sensibility while newcomers are in for a real treat. Regardless of what camp you fall into, How to Build a Time Machine looks fantastic.


No release date yet but stay tuned to the documentary’s Facebook page for updates.

on the one hand, the story of this mans quest to replicate this iconic device is touching...while on the other hand, the entire concept of time travel, to my mind, is absurd... it should turn out to be a good watch on Netflix though....
