Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World

A documentary on the world wide web, touching on but not limited to its founding, current lifestyles, addictions, bullying, radiation, artificial intelligence, space travel, self-cognizance, and the future. Werner Herzog's Lo and Behold contains some interesting tidbits but is way too disjointed and abstract and it left me saying something I almost never say in that this probably would have worked a whole lot better in an expanded form. Also, as much of a benefit as Herzog himself has been to his nonfiction features, his interviews often seem stagey and fake which is definately the case here.
