4 of what only appear to be snouts up for
What the @#$%! Do We Know?
Run, don't walk, to see this highly unusual movie about the relationship between quantum physics and our own perception of reality. It combines a documentary talking heads style with a fictional plot revolving around deaf actress Marlee Matlin's increasingly odd encounters with the world around her.*

I told our exceptional seven year old about the film right away figuring that except for the allusions to graphic sex, she would love it. It went like this:

Mommy: Wouldn't you love to see a movie that's how everything we think we know about what we perceive is possibly an illusion created by our own minds?

Exceptional Seven Year Old: No. Can we get ice cream after gymnastics?

*Bonus for Portland, Oregon fans, the movie begins and ends at the Baghad Theater.
