What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004) – 3.5/5
What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004)
Thought provoking, but a pretty dangerous movie. They certainly take a lot of leaps in their arguments to try to make their points. A good bit of slight-of-hand.
They also hit a lot of topics, concepts, scientific area/theories/ideas, use a cute story, animation, etc. It’s hard to focus on one thing and when you try they’re already on another point and you’ve only had time to understand their argument (and not examine it) before they’ve moved on.
Unfortunately, this probably had the opposite effect on me than what might be intended – I believed it less than they probably wanted. While their spiritual conclusions might be whacko, I’d like to know if their neurology had any merit b/c that cd be pretty interesting.
I wd love to see/read a response to this movie from someone I knew I cd trust. 🙂
The credentials of the interviewees (which you don’t see until the end) are impressive, but these days it’s hard to trust college professors and Ph.D.s and such w/o knowing more about them.
The reviews on IMDB are pretty negative, but well worded and intelligent.
I wd have given it a higher rating b/c it’s interesting, but it’s dangerous.
