The minds boggle: Reviews of “What the Bleep Do We Know!?”

Some pretty interesting reviews/comments of “What the Bleep Do We Know!?”:
‘This film is even more pretentious than it is boring. And it is stupefyingly boring – unless, of course, you are fooled by its New Age fakery, in which case it might indeed be – as many innocent dupes have stated – “life-changing”.’
‘…unfortunately, early references in the film to quantum physics are not followed through, leading to a confused message … may lead people to think that quantum properties, which describe matter at a very small scales, are equally applicable at large scales.’
‘I have spent my entire working life either doing science or conveying its meaning and beauty to the public. Consequently, I despise What the Bleep Do We Know!?, because it distorts science to fit its own agenda, it is full of half-truths and misleading analogies, and some of its so-called scientific claims are downright lies. Worse still, having achieved cult status in America, this film has already duped millions into mistaking pure claptrap for something of cosmic importance.’
‘Overall, if you manage to stay awake, you’ll be exposed to such ludicrous extrapolations from microphysics that you may emerge expecting electrons to have vaginas.’
