All Critics (141) | Top Critics (43) | Fresh (131) | Rotten (10)

  • Lo and Behold seems to be stoking fears that our tools are evolving beyond our capacity to control them, which offers an intriguing twist on his usual theme of the indifference of nature.

    July 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • As with many Herzog films the results are complex, endlessly fascinating, sometimes disturbing and often weird.

    February 17, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A lesser Werner, but still worth dipping your brain into.

    November 2, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a sporadically fascinating film that dips its toe into many different themes where perhaps it should have chosen to immerse itself in just one or two.

    October 30, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • He specialises in stories about impossible dreams and defying nature and for his latest film Werner Herzog turns to the most ambitious, abominable creation of them all: the internet.

    October 27, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's Herzog's uncertainty as a tourist in the field that gives the film its enticing charge, as surely as his wanderings in the Antarctic, or gropings in the dark to find the world's oldest cave paintings.

    October 30, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Thoroughly comprehensive and often humorous meditation on our connected world, Lo and Behold is yet another masterwork by a master chronicler of human experience.

    July 17, 2020 | Full Review…
  • As in many of his other films, the subject matter is paradoxically both crucial and incidental: Lo and Behold is a film about the internet in the same way that Fitzcarraldo is about an opera house, or Grizzly Man is about some guy who really liked bears.

    Werner Herzog studies modern technology as only he can.

    Werner Herzog does some light documentary musings about the greatest invention of modern times (like about how nobody, no sci-fi nerd writer, saw it coming, while flying cars have yet to materialize). It's a nice evening's entertainment but little more than that. F'instance there's a peek at folks who become addicted to the net, but nada is said, projected, about how being on is the wave of the (ant colony) future.

    Really smart people talking about scary things. Only Herzog could have made this movie. (8-28-16)
