As long as Herzog continues to mouth his mysterioso epiphanies, it can't be all bad.

The unsparing eye feels a little more sparing than usual.

It's increasingly possible that the meme of Werner Herzog is surpassing the man. I found myself spending much of Lo and Behold hoping Herzog would get out of the way.

The shape of things to come is a subject very dear to the hearts of the high-tech evangelists Herzog talks to, and it accounts for the pulse of freakish comedy that beats through "Lo and Behold."

Audience Reviews for Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World

½

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.
