What the #$*! Do We Know!? (4 stars)

What the #$*! Do We Know!? image“The neurological processes and “quantum uncertainty” of life are explored in this film. Thrust from her mundane life into an Alice in Wonderland-like world, Amanda (Marlee Matlin) must develop a brand-new perception of the world and the people she interacts with. Interviews with various experts are interspersed throughout the film, which combines narrative, documentary and animation. Elaine Hendrix, John Ross Bowie and Armin Shimerman also star.”

Geoff’s Comments: This was an excellent film. The concepts around Quantum Mechanics are well defined and presented in metaphors that make it easy to comprehend, yet send the mind reeling and spinning with the possibilities it presents. Also, the manner in which they reference and define the ‘concept ‘ of ‘God’ is right up my ally. The only reason it’s not a 5 star rating is because the ‘dramatization’ aspects, although essential to putting the ideas into conceivable parables, feels a bit over the top at time.
