This is actually an interesting movie – not because of the content, but because of the way it mixes documentary with conventional story-telling!
Somehow the real story is never clear. Things move from physics to biology, to theology and then back rather quickly. At the same time, Amanda, a mute photographer with a strong aversion to weddings, has to come to grips with reality – a challenge much greater than one would think.
The real clincher of the story, of course, is Portland, which is the silent star of the movie. Starting from the Goose Hollow station of the MAX, the whole movie plays in my beloved Portland, and an intense sense of nostalgia overcame me.
The content of the movie itself is unremarkable – the usual hogwash of cognitive theories based on liberal interpretation of physics, in particular quantum mechanics. The ‘experts’ all sound a bit over the top, and the whole literal content is not good for anything.
