What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004)

What the Bleep is a thinly veiled promotional video for the New Age movement or Cosmic Humanism. In an attempt to give credibility to the premise that we are all gods and that we have the power within us to change our behavioural patterns, the film couples scientists of various fields to explain to the viewer how the brain works and some elementary quantum physics. What it fails to do in any effective way is to couple good science with bad theology. The film is riddled with driving music, animation and high tech 3-D models of cells and atoms in an attempt to bolster the theory.

What I do appreciate about the film is that it asks questions that very few people are asking today: Where do we come from? Where are we going? Who are we? I just don't think that their answers are terribly valid.
