Somber Look at Texting and Driving

From One Second to the Next (2013)

**** (out of 4)

This 34-minute documentary was produced by the major phone companies as a way to push their message of not texting and driving. The film talks to several people who were the cause of deadly accidents or the victim of such accidents due to someone texting while driving.

These type of educational films have been around for decades and more often than not they're pretty laughable and over-dramatic to the point where they're viewed today as something to have a party with while watching. That's certainly not the case with this one but that should be expected since you've got a filmmaker like Werner Herzog behind the camera. Without question he's one of the greatest filmmakers to ever live and there's no doubt that he knows how to make an emotional documentary. This film here certainly nails home its message of "waiting" to text and I think it's going to have an impact on whoever watches it. That doesn't mean it's going to make people stop texting while driving but I think the filmmaker and producers would be happy even if it just saved one life.

The stories told are pretty heartbreaking to watch and the entire film has a very somber, cold and depressing feel to it. Some have criticized it for showing redemption but I think that really misses the point. After all, life has to go on after such traumatic events and I think Herzog is simply showing the impact of one's actions and what life will be like trying to move past it. The story are all extremely well-told and for the most part the film is pretty flawless from a technical stand point. If you're familiar with the work of Herzog then you'll know that a lot of times during his documentaries he's on screen talking to the people being interviewed. It's curious to see he doesn't do that here and instead just lets the people tell their stories.

FROM ONE SECOND TO THE NEXT certainly has a message behind it and Herzog brings that point across with ease.
