Digital Life - Lo and behold

THERE is a room in one of the science buildings in UCLA that is ground zero for the birthplace of the internet. In the 2016 documentary by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog, Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, we get to see that room—complete with a commemorative plaque about the fateful day in Oct. 29, 1969, when the first message was transmitted over a network from one computer in UCLA to another at the Stanford Research Institute 400 miles to the north.

Movie review: Werner Herzog takes on internet in ‘Lo and Behold’

Werner Herzog breaks the internet in his latest documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World.” He cracks it open to carefully examine the insides — the glorious possibilities and the devastating potential pitfalls. He brings his signature style, but also his singular point of view: skeptical, hopeful, existentially curious. Through his eyes we see the internet in a different way, taking a magnifying glass to this entity that’s become ubiquitous in our daily lives.

Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World (2016) by Werner Herzog

Lo And Behold by Werner Herzog is an incredibly fascinating podcast.  Split into 10 chapters that each provide information and ask questions about different aspects of internet technology and culture, the film sees Herzog speaking to internet historians and recovering internet addicts, aerospace engineers and hackers, futurists and cynics.  All provide unique perspectives that inspire curiosity and skepticism, posing questions and exploring ideas that don’t necessarily add up to any larger conclusions, and Herzog swiftly darts from one topic of expertise to the next, never settling down to focus on one specific question or idea long enough for the viewer to be especially bored or especially enlightened.

Werner Herzog’s Human Touch Lifts Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World Above Tech-Bro Celebration

As its title suggests, Werner Herzog’s latest documentary is a broad, poetic consideration of technology’s—which is to say, humanity’s—history and future. Through interviews with the likes of Elon Musk and Kevin Mitnick, the director episodically lays bare a series of utopian visions about technology’s potential to help us learn, take us to other planets, and free us from daily tasks like driving. But Herzog’s gentle, skeptical interjections keep Lo and Behold from turning into a tech-bro hagiography. He punctuates discussions with interjections like “[Robots] can’t fall in love”—simple statements that get to the heart of the matter.

?Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World? has Herzog tugging at wires of Web

In 10 micro-chapters Werner Herzog, the director of the classic odysseys “Fitzcarraldo” (1982) and “Aguirre, the Wrath of God” (1972), tackles the rise of the Internet and the perils and promise of a connected world. The scope and the questions are nothing new – “Who is going to be liable if a computer makes a mistake?” Herzog asks about self-driven cars – but the filmmaker’s laid-back yet probing style and quest for getting at the human condition and effects of a digital sphere enveloping society is nothing short of infectious. (It’s viral, if you will.)
