Newswire: Werner Herzog’s film school primarily teaches you to break the rules

26 August 2016 7:28 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Werner Herzog has a unique approach to filmmaking, one that he’s proven surprisingly willing to share. The Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans and Grizzly Man director recently teamed up with MasterClass to teach the methods to his madness, which apparently include extralegal activities. At least, that’s the part of his syllabus that Herzog shared with Conan O’Brien, who took all of the talk of forgery and the hoodwinking of military officials in stride.

Herzog was on Conan to talk up his latest film, Lo And Behold, Reveries Of The Interconnected World, which examines how the virtual world of the internet has shaped the tangible one. So the fatalistic director naturally discussed the lessons he imparts via T1 lines, including securing financing as well as opening doors, i.e., lock-picking. Herzog also promotes perseverance via forgery when the situation warrants it. Rules are just as meaningless »

The Future More Vivid: "Lo And Behold, Reveries Of The Connected World"

25 August 2016 6:17 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

When word came from Sundance that Werner Herzog had made a documentary about the internet, it sounded like an appropriately Herzogian joke. Herzog's documentaries tend to enthusiastically explore how human consciousness is anything but rational, how it come saddled with obsessions and impulses and strange imperfections and unbridgeable psychic isolation—and really, where better to look for all of that than the internet? Go to the online comments section of any news story about Black Lives Matter, and you'll get a deeper glimpse into the abyss than anything in Grizzly Man (2005). In truth, Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World is only partly about internet communication, and dwells on its dark side only briefly. The film is more about the explosion of information technology writ on a cosmic scale: it is one of Herzog's most expansive documentaries—and one of his best in recent years—with its eye on »

What the BBC's list of the top 100 films of the 21st century means about movies

23 August 2016 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was approached about contributing to the BBC’s list of the top hundred films of the 21st century, I was excited to participate precisely because I have such conflicting feelings about lists in general. Personal lists make sense to me. If I’m making a list of my ten favorite films of last year or my twenty favorite films of all time or the best movies of the 2000s or, if I ever felt really ambitious, my 1000 favorite films ever made, that makes sense because it’s a personal point of view. Ranking films side by side is, when you really look at it, a crazy endeavor. How can you compare two things as profoundly different in intent, execution, and voice as Enter The Void and The Incredibles or Mulholland Drive and Bridesmaids or whatever head-to-head you want to name, and honestly say that one is “better” than »

James Franco’s Movie Column: What Werner Herzog’s Documentaries Teach Us About Humanity

22 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me. »

Werner Herzog Has Some Thoughts on Internet Trolling and Virtual Reality

21 August 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog’s “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” is now in theaters, meaning we finally have the chance to hear the singular auteur wax rhapsodic about the internet as he once again reveals the ecstatic truth about his chosen subject. Vice spoke to him about virtual reality, how humanity’s future will be impacted by our increasing dependence on the internet and even online trolls. Among several highlights from their discussion is Herzog’s description of the first time two computers “spoke” to one another: “a beautiful vision of the future, like a biblical event: lo and behold, there was internet.”

Arthouse Audit: Natalie Portman’s ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’ Tops Limited Openers

21 August 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Late August is not prime release time for top-end specialized films. While the quality of new entries this week is better than usual, two Sundance premieres, A24’s “Morris from America” and Werner Herzog’s documentary “Lo and Behold” are also hitting prime exposure on Video on Demand.

The best limited theatrical opening went to rookie director Natalie Portman’s “A Tale of Love and Darkness” (Focus), shot in her native Israel. The breakout of the month is CBS Films’ second-week expanding “Hell or High Water” (Lionsgate), which looks headed for Top Ten-level grosses over upcoming weeks.


A Tale of Love and Darkness” (Focus World) – Metacritic: 55; Festivals include: Cannes, Toronto 2015

$36,000 in 2 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $18,000

Natalie Portman’s Israeli-made drama did not garner strong critical response at its Cannes debut last year. But the movie star is campaigning hard to make it work, with appearances on both »

‘Lo and Behold’ Exclusive Promo: Werner Herzog Dives Into The Heart of The Internet

19 August 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Internet is all around us, connecting humans with each other and providing the world with more information than ever before, but what is its existential impact? How has it changed our worldviews? Director Werner Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches in his new documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World.” Containing interviews with such luminaries as Bob Kahn, Elon Musk, and Sebastian Thrun, Herzog explores the digital landscape with his trademark curiosity and sparks a number of provocative conversations about how the online world has immeasurably transformed our real world, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and even our personal relationships. Watch an exclusive promo for the film below.

'Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World' Review: Herzog vs. the Internet

19 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

About two-thirds of the way into Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, Werner Herzog poses a question to computer experts, chin-stroking philosophers and you, the audience: "Does the Internet dream of itself?" As far as onscreen queries posed by the legendary German filmmaker, this one doesn't hit the delirious heights of "Is there such [a] thing as insanity among penguins?" from 2007's Encounters at the End of the World. But delivered in his stern, oft-imitated Teutonic tone, this inquiry is enough to cause the simultaneous giddy grinning and cerebral »

Werner Herzog on Revenge Porn, Adult Diapers and the Internet's Future

15 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Since 1969, Werner Herzog has chased mirages in the Sahara desert, examined the plight of Nicaraguan child soldiers and documented the harrowing lives of Antarctica scientists. But in his new film Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World, the 73-year-old director tackles the most expansive project of his career: the Internet.

Told through a revolving series of profiles, Lo and Behold examines the history and future of the online world, dissecting everything from Internet addiction to hacktivist culture and self-driving cars. "Each one of them could have been a movie by itself, »

Ming of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys in the Air review – something wild

Phillip Warnell’s film about a man who kept a tiger and an alligator in his New York apartment questions the mysteries of animal consciousness

A strange film about a very strange episode in the life of New York City: it’s a filmic B-side to Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man. In 2003, Antoine Yates was arrested for keeping a full-size tiger named Ming in his apartment in Harlem – and also an alligator named Al. They seemed happy enough, until Ming playfully got Antoine’s leg in his mouth and a call to the emergency services had to be made. Without ever questioning Yates that closely about how he got the animals, or what it was like to live with them, film-maker Philip Warnell interviews him generally about how these animals’ captivity must have felt – and he includes ambient footage of local residents drifting about, his camera regarding them as incuriously »

Werner Herzog’s Way of Life: How He Makes a Living and Why He Teaches Filmmaking

15 July 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog is not your average film school teacher. A self-taught director, his globe-trotting adventures and chaotic man-versus-nature dramas are not the easiest projects to transform into a curriculum, but that hasn’t stopped him from giving it a shot.

Whether it’s through his Rogue Film School or, most recently, as one of the A-list instructors featured on online learning empire MasterClass, Herzog has no interest in teaching the technical elements of moviemaking. The German-born filmmaker, whose career includes epics like “Fitzcarraldo” as well as idiosyncratic documentaries such as “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”  wants to create what he calls “soldiers of cinema,” and the path to victory can be stoking his students’ appetites for experiencing life.

Werner Herzog’s latest documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” chronicles the virtual world from its unlikely origins to its outermost reaches, examining the modern, malleable digital landscape with a curious, keen eye. Aided by his indelible voiceover, Herzog speaks with such tech visionaries as Bob Kahn, Elon Musk, and Sebastian Thrun to explore how the virtual has completely changed the physical, and the ways in which our lives are forever altered by our connection to the Internet. Herzog probes the philosophical questions that lie not so far beneath the surface and takes a harsh look at the benefits and pitfalls of our new world.

Poster and trailer for Werner Herzog’s Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World

2 June 2016 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following its critically acclaimed premiere at Sundance earlier in the year, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for director Werner Herzog’s latest documentary Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World; check them out below…

“Legendary master filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams) examines the past, present and constantly evolving future of the Internet in Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Working with Netscout, a world leader in-real time service assurance and cybersecurity, which came aboard as a producer and led him into a new world, Herzog conducted original interviews with cyberspace pioneers and prophets such as PayPal and Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, Internet protocol inventor Bob Kahn, and famed hacker Kevin Mitnick.

Werner Herzog Takes on the Internet in New Trailer For ‘Lo and Behold: Reveries of The Connected World’

31 May 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From the grand, savage outdoors to the inner chambers of those awaiting certain death, Werner Herzog has gone to the ends of the Earth to capture our innermost dreams and fears in his documentaries. For his latest, Lo and Behold: Reveries of The Connected World, he looks to the unwieldy unknown of the Internet and how its evolution has immensely affected the way we communicate, for better or worse.  Told in 10 distinct chapters, from “The Early Days” to “The Future,” the film will arrive later this summer and today we have a new trailer and poster.

I said my review, “While most of Werner Herzog’s work seems timeless in its themes, one of the most interesting aspects of Lo and Behold is to imagine if the many predictions offered up throughout will come to fruition. Can a robot soccer team defeat FIFA world champions? Will we be able to tweet our thoughts? »

Ten Things I Learned At The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

7 May 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Well, another year spent in the company of classic cinema curated by the TCM Classic Film Festival has come and gone, leaving me with several great experiences watching favorite films and ones I’d never before seen, some already cherished memories, and the usual weary bag of bones for a body in the aftermath. (I usually come down with something when I decompress post-festival and get back to the working week, and this year has been no exception.) There have now been seven TCMFFs since its inaugural run in 2010. I’ve been lucky enough to attend them all, and this time around I saw more movies than I ever have before—18 features zipping from auditorium to queue and back to auditorium like a gerbil in a tube maze. In order to make sure I got in to see everything I wanted to see, I had to make sure I was »

The American Film Institute has selected Werner Herzog as the Charles Guggenheim Symposium honoree at the AFI Docs festival.

Magnolia Pictures will open the film in select theaters in the summer.

“Whether exploring unseen corners of the world or contemplating technology in our lives, Werner Herzog’s cinematic voice is unmistakably evocative,” said Michael Lumpkin, director of AFI Docs. “He wields a world-class power, using his artistry to provoke audiences into seeing their world from the most esoteric angles.”

Herzog’s  documentary credits include “Into the Abyss,” “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” the Oscar-nominated “Encounters at the End of the World,” “Grizzly Man,” “The White Diamond,” the Emmy-nominated “Little Dieter Needs to Fly, »

“Crazy Women, the News, Florida, Guns”: Robert Greene on Kate Plays Christine

26 April 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

To lean on my Sundance write-up to summarize Kate Plays Christine: “Sarasota TV journalist Christine Chubbuck shot herself live on-air in 1974 and died 14 hours later. The suicide footage exists on one two-inch tape, which is inaccessibly locked up in the vault of the former president of the Florida station (now part of ABC) Chubbuck worked at, so there are shades of Grizzly Man in Robert Greene’s Kate Plays Christine. The premise is that Kate Lyn Sheil’s preparing to play Chubbuck in a movie that will conclude with a recreation of the suicide, and the climactic question is whether the actress can go through with it. Scenes from this ostensible […] »
