WATCH: What to Watch on Netflix Lo and Behold Looks at the Wonders and Horrors of the Internet
Werner Herzog has made a career of documenting humans struggling with nature. His subjects are the people who live (and die) with grizzly bears in the Alaskan wilderness, the aviation engineer trying to fly through South American rainforests, or Antarctic scientists isolated at the “end of the world.” At the heart of these documentaries is the disconnect between the nature-loving subjects and Herzog’s Germanic skepticism. In the celebrated Grizzly Man, about the bear advocate Timothy Treadwell, Herzog states “that in all the faces of all the bears that Treadwell ever filmed, I discover no kinship, no understanding, no mercy.” But in his 2016 documentary, Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World—which is currently streaming on Netflix—Herzog turns his existential eye to the center of modern civilization: the Internet. There, he finds a similar mix of marvels and horrors as he does in the extremes of nature.
