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

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.
According to this book, [I paraphrase, so no offense intended], this is a paradigm shifted. First one has to look at one's belief system thus the effects of what you have been enculturated to believe. Most of us believe in God as an external force. The Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam control the masses of people. One has to allow oneself to think out of the box. But first one must recognize there is a box we are all in! We can change reality with our thoughts and feelings. Having studied neurochemistry and communications between the neurons and receptors cells perhaps I can explain: When you take narcotics for pain, evidentially you require more, as the receptor cells actually increase in number. The more one engages in a particular thought(s) or feeling(s) the greater the number of receptors will form so thought and feeling can becomes like an addiction. When you remove the stimulus the connections will weaken and break apart.
Confused yet? Wait there’s more! By deciding perhaps to feel a certain way that feels good and practice feeling this way one can build up the neural connections according to this presented theory. If you feel negative or low self esteem most times you have built up the neural pathways causing a kind of addictive pattern similar to a drug addiction. I’ve learned “Fake it till you make it.” Like an actor learns to pretend to have healthy self-esteem, eventually you may actually start to believe you can and what it feels like. This could rock your world.
You could possibly change your reality by changing your thoughts and feelings. I never said it was easy! In Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs this would fall on the top level of existentialism; the bottom level being food and shelter.
There were some hilarious moments in the movie especially the Wedding scene with the CGI (Computer generated Imaging).
Of course I didn’t understand all of it! That would be too scary as they say at the end. It’s too much and too far out. Like freaky woman (or man). Quantum Physics is different with the parallel multiverses, dimensional levels with different wave frequencies. Personally I love this stuff science meeting spirituality. It’s a great escape for me dealing with multiply health problems. It’s been said one can heal them selves with one’s thoughts. Please someone teach me how to fix malformations, pathologies and Neuropathy's causing pain! I need an attitude change about my perception of health care and my body. Hard to stop seeing oneself as physically sick when one has been that way most of their life. But I’m willing to try to break out of my personal hell. One can understand a concept but application is something else. I enjoyed the movie. A great escape.
MOST DEFINITELY A HIT FOR THOSE WHO CONSIDER THEMSELVES "Vari-abled" versus disabled. Marlee Beth Matlin is incredible.
