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.
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!
Amanda learns to relax into the experience, she conquers her fears,
gains wisdom, and wins the keys to the great secrets of the ages, all
in the most entertaining way. She is then no longer the victim of circumstances,
but she is on the way to being the creative force in her life. Her life
will never be the same.
fourteen top scientists and mystics interviewed in documentary style
serve as a modern day Greek Chorus. In an artful filmic dance, their
ideas are woven together as a tapestry of truth. The thoughts and words
of one member of the chorus blend into those of the next, adding further
emphasis to the films underlying concept of the interconnectedness
of all things.
chorus members act as hosts who live outside of the story, and from
this Olympian view, comment on the actions of the characters below.
They are also there to introduce the Great Questions framed by both
science and religion, which divides the film into a series of acts.
Through the course of the film, the distinction between science and
religion becomes increasingly blurred, since we realize that, in essence,
both science and religion describe the same phenomena.
film employs animation to realize the radical knowledge that modern
science has unearthed in recent years. Powerful cinematic sequences
explore the inner-workings of the human brain. Quirky animation introduces
us to the smallest form of consciousness in the body the cell.
Dazzling visuals reinforce the films message in an exciting, powerful
way. Done with humor, precision, and irreverence, these scenes are only
part of what makes this film unique in the history of cinema, and a
true box-office winner.
