Description

Remember life before the Internet? This technology of science fiction now infiltrates nearly every aspect of our lives—at great convenience but at what cost? Werner Herzog’s newest meditation is a playful yet chilling examination of our rapidly interconnecting online lives. Herzog describes the Internet as “one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing,” and yet he tempers this enthusiasm with horror stories from victims of online harassment and Internet addiction. For all of its detailed analysis, this documentary also wrestles with profound and intangible questions regarding the Internet’s future.

"The virtual future may be now, but 'Lo and Behold,' with its stimulating volley of insights and ideas, always feels persistently, defiantly human." - Variety
