Film Review: What The $#@%! Do We Know?
(AKA: What the Bleep Do We Know?)

By Anna Darrah, June 8, 2004

This reality-shattering film is an enigma to most film festival programmers who have no idea where to list it in their catalogs.  And list it they will because this film is powerful and mind bending, with audiences begging for it as word of mouth spreads slowly across the country.  It is uncategorizable because the film, created by William Arntz, Betsy Chasse and Mark Vicente, actually blends three different types of filmmaking with at least as many genres.  It is a documentary interviewing 14 of the most thought-provoking scientists, academics and mystics of our time.  It is a narrative feature-film starring Marlee Matlin, Elaine Hendrix and a host of other recognizable actors.  It is an animated exploration of the science of our inner beings with giggling, evil, sexy, jiggling amoeba-like cells that, unbeknownst to us, run our lives.  It’s a romantic comedy, a drama, and a scientific treatise.  But the weirdest thing about this film is that it works!  It’s a great movie.  The best kind of movie.  You learn, you laugh, you feel compassion and intrigue, and most of all you feel inspired by your own potential by the end of the film.  It is truly a life-changing experience.  I bet by now you’re really wondering what this film is about!

“What The !@$%& Do We Know?” tells us that life as we know it is really much more subjective than we generally think it is and asks the question, “who is responsible for my life being what it is today?”  The answer, of course, is you.  You are responsible for your life being what it is today because from a scientific standpoint (the mystics and scientists tell us), your life is purely what you perceive it to be.  At this point, we are introduced to Marlee Matlin as Amanda, a bitter photographer who is so wrapped up in her past failures that she is practically blind to her present life.  Until this day, when for some unknown reason, the Universe decides to show her in great detail exactly how reality works.
