If you have been thinking about watching the 99-minute movie about the LHC, Particle Fever (by Mark Levinson and David Kaplan), it's time for you to recheck the movie's website which provides you with diverse ways how to be able to see the thriller.
What's your place where you usually get movies? Amazon? iTunes? Something else? ;-) Whatever it is, you should look there because chances are that you may see the movie very soon, sooner than you expect! You may find traces of the movie that you haven't found before when you tried. I hope that the hints have been sufficient. :-)
I won't explicitly tell you whether I have already watched the movie because I don't want to be accused of acausality or a related sin. ;-)
But I can still assure you that the movie is great, exciting, and professional. It employs physicists to reveal why they really feel that the machine is so great and important, how patient they are, why it may decide about everything, why we may learn nothing, why they were attracted to or repelled from physics. Various yummy episodes associated with the LHC, including the LHC black hole, the LHC rap, the 2008 liquid helium leak accident, and the moments when the machine was getting started, are shown nicely, along with one of the punch lines of the story, the discovery of the Higgs boson, and how it affected various people and collaboration. Lots of pictures from the real social and intellectual life of the particle physicists – and some biographies of some of the physicists.
The viewer is reminded about some predictions about the Higgs mass, 115 GeV, 140 GeV, what is good for the multiverse, a Higgs excess near 140 GeV that most of us have already forgotten about, and the nightmare scenario.
Nima, Savas, Fabiola, Monica (postdoc Ms Dunford), and others were shown as great actors. They're also runners, piano players, bikers, ping pong players, movers or rubbish pretending to be ordered arts, children of dissidents, crying kids who are scared of infinity in the paradise, and so on.
