  • 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.

    Top Critic
  • 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 27, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A thorough, thoughtful piece of work from Herzog, but slightly ho-hum in its fence-sitting tendencies ...

    October 27, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This is an intriguing and provocative film which explores its subject from many different angles. What it lacks is a point of view.

    October 27, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Herzog plays intellectual explorer, notching up points of view like a kid in a cerebral candy store.

    October 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • As long as Herzog continues to mouth his mysterioso epiphanies, it can't be all bad.

    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)
