What the Bleep Do We Know!? (NR)
There are many aspects to What the Bleep Do We Know that deserve slamming, but a lack of ambition is certainly not one of them. It is a film about ideas, big ideas. Defying genre categorization, it uses documentary, narrative and experimental film technique to drive a scant storyline based around a young woman photographer. Any excuse for a plot, however, is used solely as a vehicle for ideas, as the film is dominated by a panel of 14 physicists and professional mystics deployed to pontificate the limits of human consciousness, the nature of God and our infinite potential to create our reality. It's not a family movie, to say the least. At its best, it flirts with the sort of intellectual calisthenics that'll make your brain spasm; at its worst, the movie often winds up feeling exactly like what it is: a pedagogical artifice. What The Bleep Do We Know is easier to dismiss than it is to even remotely understand -- and this might not be such a bad idea. -- John Dicker
