Particle Fever, documentary, not rated, Center for Contemporary Arts, 3.5 chiles

A documentary that wrings cheers from an audience might be a rare thing, but it’s difficult not to get caught up in the rapture of Particle Fever. Since 2008, CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) has been conducting experiments on the world’s largest particle accelerator in an effort to find proof of the existence of the Higgs boson, an elementary particle sometimes referred to as the “God particle.” The film tells the story of the Higgs boson’s discovery and, even for those who think nuclear physics is purely for brainiacs, it’s an entertaining, thought-provoking ride.
