WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW?

comment

It's 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 1980s-style video-effects graphics and woven through the day of one woman (Marlee Matlin) coming to terms with quantum mechanics in her curiously unraveling existence. It's odd that the filmmakers chose not to identify the interviewees until the end credits. Esteemed Stanford physicist or Ramtha, the 35,000-year-old entity who reputedly speaks through JZ Knight -- they're both on board. An uneven, overly ambitious work, though at times entertaining and provocative, particularly for those not satisfied with simply being. Loews Waterfront
