A loose, episodic account of the Internet’s incursions into our public and private lives, Werner Herzog’s latest documentary is an exercise in breathlessness. Like much of his recent work, Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World is essentially expository, even if it’s more interested in eccentricity and excitement than information. Indeed, the film begins in the birthplace of the Internet, a drab UCLA computer lab, but quickly departs for stranger shores, exploring subjects ranging from online harassment to artificial intelligence to Internet connectivity on Mars.
