Featured Film:

Lo & Behold at the SIFF Uptown

Werner Herzog and his inimitable style continues at the Uptown this week for a documentary rumination on the internet, with Lo & Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Taking a cue perhaps from the spacey disconnections of our hyperlinked present, the film is a series of stories about the internet and its impact on human lives. Some are more compelling than others, of course, but binding it all together is Herzog’s deadpan narration, always funny, sometimes insightful, occasionally baffling. It’s not one of the prolific director’s best works, or even as good as some of his recent documentaries like Cave of Forgotten Dreams  or Encounters at the End of the World, but it’s as good a film as one is like to find in these dark days of the end of summer.
