Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, from auteur filmmaker Werner Herzog, is an existential documentary, exploring humanity’s developing relationship with modern technologies. Alike to Fata Morgana (1971) and Grizzly Man (2005), Herzog – in typically eccentric fashion – finds the extraordinary in the ordinary. The film further examines the internet’s growing relevance in 21st century society, the impending sentience of robotics, as well as our emotional and physical dependence on technology. Herzog delivers another introspective masterpiece.
