It Doesn't Matter2012

Saturday Morning Physics

  • 3.7
Filmmaker Lori Felker creates a science-for-kids television program to explore the meaning of matter, or, more specifically, what doesn't matter. Her two wacky physicists, wearing lab coats labeled "MATTER" and "DOESN'T MATTER" respectively, discuss the four phases of matter (solid, gas, liquid, plasma) and the intangible, unmeasurable types of "doesn’t matter" (fear, hope, anger, etc.) and the three "mags" (magnitude, magnetism and magic) that allow people to "have" "doesn’t matter." Whether or not their experiment in capturing "doesn't matter" actually works, the final image of this clever, suggestive film seems to have the answer. - Marilyn Ferdinand

An accurate attack on the irritatingly and condescending PBS mini science documentaries of the past. The use of smocks, props and outdoor locations are so ironic I wanted to run right out with my tools and do one of their experiments. Thank you Mr. Wizard!

What do I think, it doesn't matter. What matters is that you watch this delightful short film, right now.

high quality comedy. it's like the museum of jurassic technology amplified their sense of humor and made an extended SNL skit

Delightful.

A clever exercise in sarcasm, focusing on the substance of most of what humans do with their brains.
