I’ve been completely swamped with work lately, and one of the biggest reasons for that is also the subject of Werner Herzog’s latest documentaries, titled Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. In Lo and Behold, Herzog appears to be giving his unique point of view (in his trademark voice) on how technology and the internet have so pervaded our societies. From Elon Musk to Buddhist monks, Herzog points his camera at everyone and asks them to describe their thoughts, plans, and relationships with technology. And man, if the finished film is anything like this trailer, it’s going to be glorious.
Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World comes out July 8, 2016.
