Quite close to London, but for many, a million miles away, Southend-on-Sea is a town along the Thames estuary. World Without End (No Reported Incidents), the new documentary from Jem Cohen, is a portrait of this place–everyday streets, everyday birds, unflagging tides, mud, and sky. But it is also about humanity and history, about prize-winning Indian curries, an encyclopedic universe of hats, and a nearly lost world of proto-punk music.
