Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The content will be of interest to anyone who ever had to show progress on research and to anyone who ever had a spiritual experience.

Con: There's just no story here. At the end, Andrea has no progress to show, Michael is in a mental institution, and Natalie's one real spiritual experience has alienated her from the "researchers.

  1. As you say, not really a story. Just a reflection on having faith in only the tangible versus really knowing anything beyond.
