A thorough, thoughtful piece of work from Herzog, but slightly ho-hum in its fence-sitting tendencies ...
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 fascinating, scary (so scary), interesting stuff.
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."
The resultant film is an exhilarating, fascinating, and somewhat terrifying meditation on the consequences of connection.
Although far from perfect, this fragmented, curious and cautious tale of our connected world makes for essential viewing.
The internet has fundamentally changed the lives of every single person on the Earth, and such a seismic shift in how people live their lives fascinates Herzog, and we're lucky enough that he wishes to share his fascination with the rest of us.
Despite being beautifully shot, it's not one of the director's best. Herzog should have understood that to the new god he's trying to uncover, tweeting and praying are the same thing.
If Lo and Behold lacks the otherworldly strangeness of Herzog's best documentaries, it remains slyly unsettling for other reasons... Herzog gleefully considers a future dystopia caused by our over-reliance on the web.
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.
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)
