Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016)

Director: Werner Herzog. 98 min. Rated PG-13. Documentary.

Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have warned that a sentient A.I. would be the end of human civilization. Werner Herzog's new documentary, with several random thoughts told in ten chapters, from the internet's inception to its glory to its dark side to its future, is an expansion of that warning by the technology titans. But films and shows like Zero Days and Mr. Robot have already drawn a very somber picture of how our lives could collapse in a blink of an eye, so I was expecting a stronger meditative punch by Herzog. Still, worth the watch.
