Don Shanahan of Every Movie Has a Lesson muses with Werner Herzog's documentary "Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World"

Leave it to renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog to hit you with a buffet’s worth of food for thought.  His musings on the origins of the internet and its growing ramifications, both positive and negative, on this modern world are sternly served in his new documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World.”  Scintillating one minute and sobering the next, this film is required viewing for anyone who has seen how far we’ve come with connectivity and wonders fearfully just how high this Icarus of technology can fly towards the Sun before it melts and crashes back to Earth. 9 more words
