Storyline

"WHAT THE #$*! DO WE KNOW?!" is a radical departure from convention. It demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus. It's a documentary. It's a story. It's mind-blowing special effects. This film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.

Goofs

In the wedding, Elliot hands over a drink to Amanda. She accidentally blows off the yellow mini-umbrella of her drink. Elliot licks the stick of his pink mini-umbrella and puts it in Amanda's drink. The next scene shows Amanda still has the yellow mini-umbrella on her drink, and Elliot still has his pink mini-umbrella on his drink. Although, in a film about how perception effects reality...maybe the umbrella was blue! See more »

Absurd
5 December 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Anyone who has studied any physics or cognitive science will walk out disgusted after 40 min., as my wife and I did. The ignorant masses might be entertained by the hand-waiving arguments and the absurd "conclusions" drawn (without even an attempt at a logical reason) from real science. I'm offended by such nonsense presented under the guise of "science". I can only conclude that the writers picked up a quantum physics book, didn't understand a word of it, then watched The Matrix about a thousand times, and proceeded to write this movie.

For example, the Washington DC crime experiment was done by The Transcendental Meditation Program. A brief search will reveal the science of their methods. (http://www.freedomofmind.com/resourcecenter/groups/t/tm/dissenter.htm)
