    Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World is a documentary about the Internet from Werner Herzog, who acts as our wistful narrator and interviewer. Herzog isn't all that interested in the "hard" documentary, so he focuses on the oddities of the his subject and of the people he puts in front of the camera. We're at the fringes so we can talk about the philosophical implications of the Web more than its historical and technical aspects (though those are certainly touched on as well). This documentary essay equates the Internet with God, the Devil, abstract interconnectivity, and never with any real authority. It provokes thought, but doesn't deliver answers. Herzog is a master at asking strange questions that take the experts out of their comfort zone and musing about things they might not have even thought of before. It makes for an experience that's far less dry than you would have expected from the subject matter, but it's also rather meandering... which might be part of the point, when you think about how the Internet works. 7 years ago

    I think the problem in this documentary is that it doesn't seem to have an idea what the documentary is about. It makes it really difficult to keep up with and I don't think after watching I even can say what it was about. Seemed like 5 random documentaries edited into one. 6 years 7 months ago
