For the Record:

I (heart) Huckabees is very good and What the (bleep) Do We Know? is very bad. The two movies talk to each other. The first says to the second, “You are dumb and prey on people’s existential fears”. The first also brings into clear relief what people mean when they say things like “existential fears”. It even has a neat master’s thesis about the relationship between the two strands of postmodern thought, the one that emphasizes connectivity or thoroughgoing connection and the one that emphasizes spiritual aloneness and arbitrariness.
