The brothers say their attitude is one of essential ignorance. They think that human beings are caught in a false epistemology. "Most of us are trapped in the belief that we know the truths about things or that it is at least possible to know them. We somehow fail to see that all knowledge is probabilistic and that life is full of uncertainties." The brothers believe that acceptance of fallibility frees one from the compulsion to know the truths about things, events or even what is right and wrong. "To us this letting go is freedom". Their films are mostly about how belief in psychological and ethical certainties complicates life and how ´letting go´ brings freedom.
