Another Don't-Miss Flick You Probably Missed

Knowing with Nic Cage. Scary and profound. It poses the question quantum physicists debated endlessly—and still unresolvedly–with Einstein: whether the universe is deterministic, we just can’t determine what the “hidden variables” within subatomic articles are. Or whether it’s radically random, there’s NO exlanation beyond probablistic statistics (which really isn’t an explanation but a description) why one atom of U-235 distintegrates “spontaneously” and another doesn’t.

No, it’s not a physics lesson on film. It’s a totally absorbing apocalpytic horror movie that film critics just didn’t get. Don’t let their lack of intellectual curiosity prevent you from catching it on DVD.
