What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004)
very interesting although I don't agree with everything in it
I like it because it challenges a lot of things that we take for granted and makes us think, but I don't believe everything they talk about, I don't believe quantum mechanics is so true that it can be applied to every aspect of our lives. I had thought about some of the ideas in the movie before, for example, you only see things that you'd like to see; every person generates a kind of bioelectromagnetic field that affects the environment more or less; there's not much difference between what you "actually" (which is an ambiguous word, in this discussion ^_^ ) experience and that you conjure in your pure imagination (for example, you can feel the absolute reality in your dreams!) However I feel they exaggerated some effects, and made some assumptions in science sound like "facts". Even if there're numerous possibilities, some possibility is so small that it never happens, so it doesn't really affect us even if it does exist theoretically. I am not ready to agree with the big belief in the movie that you can change life and world inside out if you change your "mind", because what I believe is, mind is not pure spirit, it has its biology base, and it also affects the body. To say which is dominant seems circular logic to me, it's like, which comes first, chicken or egg. I do believe that you can gradually alter your mind-body to a certain degree by reinforcing either mind or body or both, but it really takes a lot of time and strong will, not just a quick moment of thought! To me, the movie is over-optimistic. But, many great things start from a thought, in this sense I appreciate the movie and think it's very provocative and uplifting. About the question why we think what do now affect the future not the past, you won't think it's trivial or stupid if you know a little about modern physics, just as you won't think the question "why apples fall downward not upward" stupid if you know gravity. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has a basic understanding of quantum mechanics theory and an open mind about what's taken for granted.
The Company (2003)
I watched the movie last Oct during the VA film festival. I chose this out of many films in the festival after I saw some review on IMDB, and I made the right choice (thanks for someone's good review)! Now that I just browsed the site again and am really surprised The Company has such a low average rating. I don't usually like musical movies very much, and I don't know dance at all, but I really enjoyed this movie. True it doesn't have much plot or breath-taking moment, but isn't it something fresh to the eyes and ears out of our own routine life and the ordinary hollywood movies. I found the ballet scenes so amazingly beautiful, the acting was natural, and it's interesting to see the daily lives of the dancers which had seemed remote to me. It also has many warm and light hearted little moments (like the Christmas party) that make you feel good.
