Nothing quite as theatrical as bomb-dropping happens in Fishel's video, though. In fact, nothing really happens at all—there's no perceptible sense of time, or place, or when, why, or how. There's no perceivable end, or middle, or beginning, either. Fishel says that quiet, contemplative vibe was the effect he strove for in the film, but that's about all he consciously hoped audiences might take away with them from "In The End . . ." "If they feel a sense of calm or peace in the presence of war machines designed to kill millions of people . . . that's great," he says. Still, "some part of me says, 'I hope it's compelling enough visually that [people] get interested and want to ask questions,' but I don't actually expect that of people," Fishel admits.
