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 doesn't 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 isn't 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

That said, there is a definite divide between two schools of thought – science versus perception (by perception I mean how a person's perception shapes his or her reality). I'm somewhere in the middle of these two schools – that while perception and outlook do, in fact, create reality to an extent, the science behind it is very important.
I still don't fully understand quantum physics and some of the experiments discussed in the film, I get the simpler ideas – some of the Dr. Quantum cartoons were interesting. And I appreciated the storyline of the photographer (Marlee Matlin), which intermittently runs between "science" segments and shows some of the ideas in the context of an actual person thrust into considering said ideas. I also appreciated the segment on Dr. Emoto and his water experiments.
The extra discs, which contain interviews and lots of other interesting discussions are, in places, even more interesting than some of the film segments.
I really liked this, not because I believe that science and spirituality have actually reconciled, but because I think that opening oneself up to new concepts, presented in a thought-provoking way, can be beneficial. You can think and decide for yourself.
The most impacting clip is when they are showing the effects of intention and thought with the water and how it changes it's form. Very cool!
I'd say it's a PG-13 movie - it does have a few intended sexual situations, and some adult language.
The movie is filled with information, computer graphics, imaginary cut scenes and fun graphics to explain the, sometimes difficult concepts such as, quantum physics and the human mind. I would recommend this to anyone who has ever been curious about quantum physics, parallel universe's, human psyche or just our deeper connection we have here together in our known universe.
Watch it with friends, as you'll need to comment on it as you',re watching. «good stoner film. Like quantum physiques in the Twilight Zone.
