THE NA­TURE OF EX­IS­TENCE

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

Roger Ny­gard (Trekkies) sets his phasers to pseu­dophi­los­o­phize for this fast-paced doc­u­men­tary, in which he trav­els the world ask­ing re­li­gious lead­ers, sci­en­tists, and oth­ers the big ques­tions like Why are we here? At times his in­tel­lec­tual in­quiries come off as en­ter­tain­ing — like when he em­beds him­self with mem­bers of Ul­ti­mate Chris­tian Wrestling and in­ter­views an an­drog­y­nous F-bomb-drop­ping spir­i­tual ad­viser named Aha. But medi­ocre pro­duc­tion val­ues and Ny­gard’s disin­gen­u­ous nar­ra­tion may leave you won­der­ing if he even cares about find­ing any an­swers ... which, of course, he doesn’t. Not rated. 94 min­utes.

Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Rob DeWalt)
