I Origins

{4.5/5} “When the big bang happened, all the atoms in the universe, they were all smashed together into one little dot that exploded outward. So my atoms and your atoms were certainly together then, and, who knows, probably smashed together several times in the last 13.7 billion years. So my atoms have known your atoms and they’ve always known your atoms. My atoms have always loved your atoms.”

I Origins, released in 2014

Ian, a scientist, is searching for ultimate proof that the human eye evolved from a creature who couldn’t see through countless iterations. His view of the world is data driven, but his girlfriend Sofi is more spiritual. Karen, his new first-year lab assistant, is happy to do mundane tasks if they’re working toward a worthy goal. A few years after Ian and Karen’s first discovery, they make an even more amazing discovery. The ending is abrupt, but watch to the end of the credits for confirmation of what the ending means. Brit Marling stars. Directed by Mike Cahill.

I previously reviewed Cahill’s movie Another Earth.
