3 things about Werner Herzog’s LO AND BEHOLD, REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD

Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World [2016]

1. The historic computer has its own scent.
2. Werner volunteers himself for a one-way ticket to Mars.
3. “Have the monks stopped meditating? They all seem to be tweeting.”

It’s easy to take for granted that Warner Herzog, now past the age of 70, is still making films every bit as vibrant and engaging as a youngster. Here we have a documentary about the internet. And he doesn’t feel to need to resort to visual tricks or gimmicks to tell his story. He combines an open-eyed curiosity about the world and technology with the wisdom of a disciplined filmmaking that prioritizes people over things. It’s the only way to explore what the internet means for our species.
