Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World: Mixed bag
Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World is a documentary by famed documentary film maker Werner Herzog. The guy has no niche, no area of expertise and has made films on everything from bears to volcanos to criminals and certainly has his way of doing things.
This is a documentary on how the internet has shaped the modern world but it's flaw is it's lack of direction and instead bounces from one aspect of this digital world to the next rather randomly.
It covers artificial intelligence and robots, it tells the origins of the internet, it touches upon the darkside of the net and gaming addictions and to those who insist on living without it.
Though there are certainly some interesting parts the whole thing feels detrived and purposeless. I'd have rather seen a documentary that touches on one single aspect of a subject as broad as this.
Watchable but not one of his best works and a tad chaotic for my liking.
Some very interesting moments
Herzog is a truly awful interviewer
Documentary has no direction
Things I learnt from this movie:
If you own a Porche you make sure everyone knows, you don't acknowledge that you have a car.......it's a porche
The internet is literally the anti-Christ
