What the Bleep Do We Know? (2004) Reviewed

Marlee Matlin stars in the narrative-framing device of this pseudo-documentary. Essentially it’s Quantum Physics for Idiots. A parade of doctors and theorists offer sound bites on concepts like God, reality and everything in between. Some of it is succinct and mind opening, but there’s an over-reliance on animated sequences to supplement the mumbo-jumbo, creating the feel of an Epcot Center presentation. Matlin is lovely, but her awkwardly staged “story” only interrupts the flow of some interesting ideas. The quantum experts on display seem to range from scholarly to crackpot. If you have ever been interested in quantum physics, its doubtful this offers any revelations. Probably plays best to the stoned. And seriously, what’s with the title? Lame!
