The Everetts

How fantastic is this: Mark Everett, the driving force behind the brilliant band Eels, is the son of Hugh Everett III, famous physicist and author of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics, and made a documentary about his father. A perfect mix of pop music and science.

Mark never really got to know his excentric father because of what seems to have been a depression-burdened family life. So, he tries to track down the physicists who worked with him to better understand both his father and his theory.

This documentary is full of science, famous physicists, drama, music, and pop culture. Best documentary I have seen in a long time.
