WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

by

comment

This updated version of 2004's word-of-mouth hit contains new animated sequences, more interviews (including with author Lynne McTaggart) and a fresh opening. Though longer, it's still a new-age ramble, quantum physics discussion, light sex comedy and rallying cry for personal growth, all in one. Filmmakers William Arntz, Betsy Chasse and Mark Vicente tackle who, what and why we are (or aren't) once we get broken down into particles that may or may not be there. Such exploration is elucidated by a dozen or so talking heads, interspersed with video-effects graphics and woven through the day of one woman (Marlee Matlin) coming to terms with quantum mechanics in her curiously unraveling existence.

An uneven, overly ambitious work, though at times entertaining and provocative, particularly for those not satisfied with simply being. Starts Fri., March 10. Harris (AH)
