“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

What the [Bleep] Do We Know? (2004)
aka What the #$*! Do We K(now)?!, aka What the Fuck Do We Know?
1500 titles and we've finally hit something I can't review objectively. Marlee Matlin plays a woman with a phobia about being touched whose story gets layered with scientists explaining bits of quantum theory and then it gets all mystical... and fucking wrong, banal and irritating. I studied quantum chemistry for three years and several mystical religious systems for more than a decade; there's a temptation to meld these that's been seen since Niehls Bohr had a family crest made with a yin/yang symbol on it. Some could enjoy this film, I suppose, but I actually yelled at the screen more than once.
