What the Bleep Do We Know
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW?! is a new type of film. It is part documentary, part story, and part elaborate and inspiring visual effects and animations. The protagonist, Amanda, played by Marlee Matlin, finds herself in a fantastic Alice in Wonderland experience when her daily, uninspired life literally begins to unravel, revealing the uncertain world of the quantum field hidden behind what we consider to be our normal, waking reality. She is literally plunged into a swirl of chaotic occurrences, while the characters she encounters on this odyssey reveal the deeper, hidden knowledge she doesnt even realize she has asked for. Like every hero, Amanda is thrown into crisis, questioning the fundamental premises of her life that the reality she has believed in about how men are, how relationships with others should be, and how her emotions are affecting her work isnt reality at all!
The unlikeliest cult hit of 2004 was What the (Bleep) Do We Know?, a lecture on mysticism and science mixed into a sort-of narrative. Marlee Matlin stars in the dramatic thread, about a sourpuss photographer who begins to question her perceptions. Interviews with quantum physics experts and New Age authors are cut into this story, offering a vaguely convincing (and certainly mind-provoking) theory about... well, actually, it sounds a lot like the Power of Positive Thinking, when you get down to it. Talking heads (not identified until film's end) include JZ Knight, who appears in the movie channeling Ramtha, the ancient sage she claims communicates through her (other speakers are also associated with Knight's organization). What she says actually makes pretty good common sense--Ramtha's wiggier notions are not included--and would be easy to accept were it not being credited to a 35,000-year-old mystic from Atlantis. --Robert Horton

I noticed that people either loved it or hated it, and this is a sign of a remarkable work. Only controversial topics can draw this amount of vast diverse views.
As Einstein says “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” And I think this is why some hated it. They are identified with their education, and taking these information that they learned at school as the ultimate Truth. In this case, school became equal to churches in transplanting thoughts and limiting the freedom to think and go beyond the fabricated boundaries.
Science is a dynamic field, and quantum physics is surely mysterious. Some of the answers in the film are suggestive, whereas others are based on experiments. Some hate the results with experiments because these experiments are not traditional. Mystery seems a dirty word for some who sees it threatening their limited zone of knowing.
As a creative work, the film is very enjoyable to watch.
